Seres extravagantes: una biografía de Reinaldo Arenas narrada por sí mismo

Manuel Zayas, Spain, 2004, 54’, OV.

Documentary on Reinaldo Arenas, writer and emblematic figure of the repression process suffered by Cuban homosexuals during the 1960s and 1970s. To narrate the story, the young director uses Arenas' own voice from an interview made in 1983 by Liliane Hasson, his French translator. Zayas combines testimonials from his family, friends, little-known photos and fragments of period news clips.
