Melaza

(Cuba/France/Panama) Sun 8th Sep 8pm
Beautifully simple cinema, this sensitive, restrained love story is speckled with humour and its captivating scenery offers us a rare glimpse of rural Cuba and the people who live there. Melaza is a fine first work by a new talent in Cuban cinema that stems from a great tradition.
