Santa & Andrès

CHF 17.90 / EUR 16.50

A film by Carlos Lechuga
Cuba, France, Colombia

In 1983, in a rural mountain region of Eastern Cuba, Andrés, a noncompliant gay writer in his fifties, has been blacklisted by the government for having «ideological problems». A big event comes up and, as it is routine in these cases, someone reliable must be appointed to watch over him and make sure he does not get out and make any public political statement. Santa – a country girl in her thirties who works on a farm – is assigned to the task. For three days in a row, Santa will sit in front of Andrés’ hut and keep watch on him. Santa and Andrés are as close as it gets of being true opposites and are not meant to like each other. What they cannot imagine, however, is that they have more things in common than they ever expected.

«Santa & Andrés begins as a film about separation and pain, but becomes a movie about reconciliation and healing.» The New York Times
