A film like Los Pajaros tirándole a la escopeta (1984), beyond its comedy status, is in my view a demonstration of its ability to appropriate the Cuban wit and from there, to dialogue with society. How much has this film given to you over time? Have you bothered being associated too much with this title?
Los caminos de Aissa is a docudrama with more universal looks, but that does not stop hiding our absences, loneliness or the presence of differences. It is represented by an African woman who needs to be European and not to be alone, who needs to be admitted despite being black and Go-Go ballerina in a society that accepts her; but of which she, nevertheless, is not part. These experiences are acquired by living outside the usual environment and enrich us towards to be more universal beings. It is a spiritual gain of great magnitude.
