17:00 In conversation: Cuba's Rock Satirist + Glasgow's Tenementals Professor

Havana Glasgow Film Festival have been a fan of the work of Cuban filmmaker, writer and political satirist Eduardo Del Llano for the last decade and are delighted that he is able to join us in Glasgow for this event and to screen his films in the evening.

Both Del Llano's writing and films are renowned for their subtle sense of humour and a literary register that swings effortlessly between the highly cultivated to the highly colloquial. Del Llano possesses deep knowledge of the Cuban experience, but also has the capacity to move away and look at it from the inside and outside. He represents a unique emergent independent cinema voice in Cuba whose work functions as a sort of "in-between-ness".

His self-deprecating humour and way of looking at things chimes with the Glasgow psyche, and so he will be joined in conversation by David Archibald, proletarian Professor at the University of Glasgow and member of The Tenementals, a band of academics and musicians who came together to delve into the history of Glasgow through the power of music.

19:15 Screenings of three short films by Cuban "rock punk" director and political satirist Eduardo Del Llano.

Brainstorm I 26m I 2009:

A world record, an accident, a heroic act, a fact of scientific interest. All this happens simultaneously. The board of directors of the newspaper 'La Avanzada' must decide what goes on the cover.

Domino I 22m I 2017:

The 13th short film from Eduardo del Llano in the Nicanor series. Nicanor is worried because the rumor circulating in his neighborhood that the Cuban government is reaching an agreement with an Arab Sheikh to sell Cuba to him. While playing dominoes and drinking rum with some friends from a nearby apartment block, he finds out that they are offering 5 billion USD for the island.

La Campaña | 30m I 2021:

Felipe, a young brigadier, arrives at a hut lost among the hills somewhere in Cuba. It is 1961, in the middle of the Literacy Campaign. To their surprise, the peasant family turns out to be atypical in more ways than one.

After the films, audiences have the opportunity to ask Del Llano questions during an informative Q&A session.
