Everybody Leaves (Todos Se Van)

June 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Shot in Colombia (the director didn’t get permission to film in Cuba) and featuring a cast consisting mostly of expatriate Cuban actors, Everybody Leaves is a celebration of freedom and a confrontation with the authoritarian Cuban regime of the 1980s, which led to one of the country’s worst economic crises. The film is based on the award-winning novel by Cuban writer Wendy Guerra.

Eight-year-old Nieve is the object of her parents’ custody battle. Her mother, Eva, is an artist who believes in the revolution and disagrees with censorship or authoritarianism. She is re-married to Dan, a Swede working on the construction of a nuclear plant. Nieve’s father Manuel is a playwright who sacrifices his artistic career to write government propaganda in a remote area of the country. Through her diary entries, Nieve reveals intimate details of a turbulent family life while painting an authentic portrait of the social and political unrest in Cuba under the rule of Castro.

In Spanish with English subtitles. Featuring Yoima Valdés, Abel Rodríguez, Rachel Mojena, Scott Cleverdon, Indhira Serrano, Félix Antequera, Calbe Casas, Carlos Ever Fonseca.

Funding for this program is provided through Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the University of Central Florida.
