Staff Pick: Movie of the Week

More from the movie corner of Graziella: Viva Cuba

This week’s film is a fairy tale of sorts whose protagonists are children from opposite social classes. Made in 2005, Cremata Malberti’s Viva Cuba was the first Cuban film to be awarded the Grand Prize for children’s cinema at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Between laughter and tears, between the incredible and the fanciful, Viva Cuba looks at some serious issues while lowering the camera to the eye level of its children protagonists—and the result is an endearing little movie for everybody in the family.

Watch Viva Cuba on Kanopy here.
