MIEL PARA OSHUN (HONEY FOR OSHUN) / Cuba-España / 2001 / dir. Humberto Solás
Jorge Perugorría (Strawberry and Chocolate) stars as Roberto, who with the help of an eccentric cab driver and his cousin, embarks on a wild road trip through Cuba to search for the mother he thought had abandoned him as a child. Honey for Oshun is a compelling and funny story filled with unexpected detours, wrong turns, near dead ends, and plenty of broken-down cars. Best Picture Washington International Film Festival.
