Maria's Grotto/Soy Palestino

ANA FALASTINI (SOY PALESTINO)
Palestinian director Oussama Qashoo travels to Cuba and discovers Havana's own Palestinians- poor black migrants; 'Palestino' is a term of racist abuse. He befriends a homeless Palestino, Louisito, a singer-musician who lives in a wooden box. Louisito had not been home for seven years, so he and Qashoo set off to meet his family, on a musical-comedy journey into the politics of today's Cuba.

MAGHARAT MARIA (MARIA'S GROTTO)
