The Annunciation / La Anunciación

Pineda Barnet is the multiple award winning director of La Bella del Alhambra, (Oscar nominated, and one of the most important Cuban films of recent years). His latest feature, set in Havana , is an overwhelmingly powerful evocation of a Cuban family’s tumultuous history, centring around the reading of a will by widowed, spiritualist matriarch Amalia. It is a brilliant and visceral cinematic study of inter-generational turmoil as the family members fall victim to the tyranny of memory, tortured by the turmoil which marked their past lives.
