Vestido de Novia (His Wedding Dress)

Havana, 1994. The worst riots the Cuban capital has seen since 1959 leave a trail of broken windows and stores. Thousands of Cubans leave the island in flimsy rafts. Rosa Elena's and Ernesto's happy marriage will face its own crisis as the truth about her sex reassignment surgery years earlier comes out. Winner of the Audience Award at the Havana Film Festival, His Wedding Dress, like Strawberry and Chocolate before it, bravely confronts homophobia while celebrating tolerance.
