Please join us for a conversation with Arturo Infante regarding his experience making movies in Cuba and his accomplished first feature, El viaje extraordinario de Celeste García (2018), a rare example of Cuban science-fiction film. This intelligent, idiosyncratic comedy mixes the sense of wonder with the urge to travel, and complements Infante’s other forays into fantastic cinema, which include the shorts Flash Forward (2006) and Comité 666 (2010).
