Storyline

This documentary follows the story of Jose Rodriguez and Luis Rodriguez, two gay friends living in Cuba. One is a professional dancer, while the other works in tourism. Rodriguez has toured the world, but is content settling down in his home country. Luis is quite the opposite. He's determined to visit a friend in Germany and possibly try to escape his homeland for good. But things aren't so easy getting out of Cuba, nor easy surviving as a gay man in a country that enforces rules that are far stricter than most other countries. But Luis is determined to change his life, even if it could mean leaving his best friend behind. Written by Anonymous

see what Cuba gay life is like
17 December 2011 | by filmalamosaSee all my reviews

This is a short documentary filmed secretly in Cuba.

It is about a dancer 38 and his younger friend 28. The younger gay man wants to go to Germany and escape Cuba.

The dancer is of some renown in Cuba and is content to stay there.

The standard of living in Cuba is very low and then far worse there is the constant worry of living in a police state...

The same Gay dynamics play out no matter where you are.

The sad part is the 28 year old's ex boyfriend who has obviously suffered a serious brain injury in a car crash...ironically while they were showing the German around Cuba.

To be gay in Cuba is difficult.
