7 DAYS IN HAVANA [7 días en La Habana]
A colorful collection of seven vignettes set in Havana, directed by and starring a blend of Cuban and international talents. Highlights include Josh Hutcherson's naïve American actor getting lost in Havana's nightlife in Benicio Del Toro's EL YUMA; Emir Kusturica playing a trainwreck version of himself, saved by his resourceful and talented chauffeur Alexander Abreu in Pablo Trapero's JAM SESSION; and Elia Suleiman's delightfully deadpan, Tati-esque DIARY OF A BEGINNER. Official Selection, Un Certain Regard, 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
