Cuba, Sara Gómez, 1977, 78 min., Spanish with English subtitles

Afro-Cuban filmmaker Sara Gómez’s radical narrative-documentary hybrid (the first feature directed by a Cuban woman) delivers a complex critique of regressive machismo in Castro’s Cuba. Charting the rocky romance between a progressive teacher and a traditionalist man, One Way or Another reveals that, even in a post-revolutionary society, patriarchal attitudes must still be dismantled.

The movie is presented as part of Phi@MMFA: Cinema screens at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
