Yolanda, a young teacher, works in Havana's new Miraflores district, built in 1962 to rehouse the inhabitants of a low income area. Every day she has to deal with the prejudices of a population once accustomed to a life on the fringes of society. She falls in love with Mario, a young worker seeking a new identity within the revolutionary brigades. This opposing romance allows Sara Gómez to reveal the contradictions and failings of post-revolutionary Cuba. In DE CIERTA MANERA she admirably blends documentary and fiction, denouncing the oppression of women, the cult of virility and the class violence of Cuban society.

DE CIERTA MANERA Direction: Sara Gómez, digital, OmeU, 79 min
