Santa y Andrés
First screened in November 2016
Director: Carlos Lechuga. Cast: Lola Amores, Eduardo Martínez, George Abreu, Cesar Domínguez, Luna Tinoco, Maikel Alexi Sánchez, Ederlys Rodriguez Perez. Screenplay: Carlos Lechuga and Elisio Altunaga.

Twitter Capsule: Before Night Falls, minus flash or flesh. Kiss of the Spider Woman with fewer fantasies. Smart political two-hander.

VOR:   The stylistic floridity of the two films I've drawn as comparisons makes Santa look a bit austere, but I liked its nuanced directness.
