De Cierta Manera (One Way or Another)

Afro-Cuban filmmaker Sara Gómez’s radical narrative-documentary hybrid (the first feature directed by a Cuban woman) delivers a complex critique of regressive machismo in Castro’s Cuba. Charting the rocky romance between a progressive teacher (Cuéllar) and a traditionalist man (Balmaseda), One Way or Another reveals that, even in a post-revolutionary society, patriarchal attitudes must still be dismantled.
