Between 1975 and 1991 more than 400,000 Cuban soldiers and civilians sent to Angola in support of the country’s left-wing government. Two thousand of them were killed. December Days shows some of the ways in which the mission to Angola—a massive solidarity effort from a small country—touched the lives of ordinary Cubans.
Post-screening presentation: Cuban film critic and feminist scholar, Zaira Zarza will be present with filmmaker Carla Valdés León and/or other Cuban women directors to discuss the current landscape for women filmmakers in Cuba.
