Cuban Visions Program 4: Emerging Women Filmmakers

*Program will include other shorts by women, awaiting confirmation

Días de Diciembre (December Days) / Directed by Carla Valdés León / 45 min. / 2017 / Documentary Short / Spanish with English subtitles
Between 1975 and 1991 more than 400,000 Cuban soldiers and civilians sent to Angola in support of the country's left-wing government. Two thousand of them were killed. December Days shows some of the ways in which the mission to Angola—a massive solidarity effort from a small country—touched the lives of ordinary Cubans.
Post-screening presentation: Cuban film critic and feminist scholar, Zaira Zarza will be present with filmmaker Carla Valdés León and/or other Cuban women directors to discuss the current landscape for women filmmakers in Cuba.

Cuban Visions is a new film series presented by Full Spectrum Features, the Americas Media Initiative, and Athenaeum Theatre Productions. Cuban Visions will present the work of Cuban filmmakers to Chicago audiences, providing a unique window into both early revolutionary and contemporary Cuban society.

The series will feature a diverse range of Cuban films including animation, short fiction, and documentaries, and cover issues such as racial inequity, the Cuban economy, Cuban internationalism, Afro-Cuban identity, women’s rights, and more. Each of the six screenings will be followed by panel discussions, featuring Cuban filmmakers, producers, journalists, film critics and scholars as well as U.S.-based academics and community stakeholders. These thought-provoking and rarely seen Cuban films will challenge U.S. audience’s long-held misconceptions about past and present Cuban reality.
