Screening of STRAWBERRY AND CHOCOLATE (Cuba)
In 1979 Cuba, flamboyant gay artist Diego attempts to seduce the straight and strait-laced David, an idealistic young communist, and fails dismally. But David conspires to be "friends" with Diego so he can monitor the artist's subversive life for the state.
Strawberry and Chocolate is the only film from Cuba to have ever been nominated for an Academy Award.
Presented with Havana Film Fest NY.
