Nadie (2017) tells the story of love and deception in the Cuban revolution, seen through the eyes of a man who was initially mesmerized by all its possibilities. Rafael Alcides was once a widely-known and celebrated writer of the Cuban revolution; now, a stranger in his own country, he tries to salvage his unpublished novels as the ink fades away from their pages. Filmmaker Miguel Coyula has created a pop culture collage, combining clips from old movies, photographs and imaginary conversations all held together by the magnetic personality of raconteur Rafael Alcides.
Miguel Coyula (writer/director/co-producer) and Lynn Cruz (actor/co-producer) will join moderator Cristina Venegas (Film & Media Studies, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.
The event is sponsored by Carsey-Wolf Center.
