About the films
Mother of Gerorge
Ayodele (Isaach De Bankolé) and Adenike (Danai Gurira) marry and start a new life. As months pass without a pregnancy, Adenike feels torn between her Yoruba culture and her new life in America, struggling to save her marriage.
In this slice-of-life documentary, director Fernando Pérez chronicles the simple lives of various people living in Havana, Cuba, with minimal action and dialogue. Some of the subjects followed include: an old woman who makes her living selling peanuts on the street; a man who takes care of an elderly woman during the day and plays the saxophone at night; a doctor who aspires to be an actor; and a construction worker whose true passion is dancing ballet.
