Canoa

Loading...
"One of Mexico's most highly regarded works of political cinema, Canoa: A Shameful Memory reimagines a real-life incident that had occurred just eight years before its release, when a group of urban university employees on a hiking trip were viciously attacked by residents of the village of San Miguel Canoa who had been manipulated by a corrupt priest into believing the travelers were communist revolutionaries.

Todos Se van =: Everybody Leaves

The movie is based on the autobiographical novel with the same title by Cuban writer Wendy Guerra. Nieve, an eight year old Cuban girl, is involved in the struggle of her parents to get her custody.

Manuel is her father, a playwright who sacrifices himself to writing pamphleteer plays in a remote area of the country. This story is a celebration of freedom and a confrontation of authority that takes place in the 1980s, in the midst of one of the worst economic crisis in Cuba.
