The Pollock Theater’s first Film Festival showcases the diverse talents of emerging Cuban filmmakers. With state-of-the-art presentation and post screening Q&A’s with directors, this festival offers a unique experience that should not be missed.

With the closure of the sugar mill, the little town of Molasses is devastated and lifeless. Aldo and Monica, a young married couple, try to find a way to survive. By supporting each other, they try to save their world without losing faith.

Join us for a post-screening Q&A with Writer/Director Carlos Lechuga and Producer Claudia Calvino, moderated by the Department of Film and Media Chair Cristina Venegas.

This event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center and the Department of Film & Media Studies.
