Havana In Bushwick

A surreal film about a Cuban American...finding himself in Brooklyn. Features English, Spanish, and Russian!

A charming narrator relays to us a simple tale: Garcia is a Cuban American living in Brooklyn. Feeling culturally displaced and unlucky in love, he is led by a Spaniard muse outside of the realm of cinema.

And that's where the story becomes hard to tell, as Magical Realism takes over. Inanimate objects come to life, images surround us...and yet the story keeps a very Cuban flavor.
