Chala is eleven years old and has been forced to grow up too soon, being the breadwinner in his family. At school he is guided with a firm but affectionate hand by his teacher, Carmela. She affords Chala the support and love lacking in his home life. He responds with mutual love and respect. But things begin to fall apart for Chala when he is sent off to a school for children with behavioural problems.
This sensitive and unembellished look into contemporary Cuba has taken the Cuban box office by storm, scored multiple awards and spurred heated debate. With brilliant performances and captivating cinematography, Behaviour has been hailed as the most notable film to come out of Cuba in the last 10 years and confirms director Daranas as one of the great filmmakers in Cuban cinema today.
Following the film, join us for our Opening Night Fiesta at the Goodgod Small Club!
Following the screening of our Opening Night Film Behaviour, the Festival will serve up a fabulous fiesta headlined by Mucho Mambo, a truly authentic latin band with a funky edge complemented by the sounds of DJ Señor Bolivar.
