Vestido de novia (His Wedding Dress)

Feature Film Cuba Spain 2014

1990s, in Havana: one of the most difficult periods of Cuban history, culminating in the uprisings of 1994. Rosa Elena is a nurse, an energetic, childless woman, loved by her husband despite his great disapproval of her friendship with Sissy, a recently operated transgender. Like most Cuban men, he can't stand the fact that his wife could be friends with a homosexual. There is also a dark secret and a threatening blackmail weighing on Rosa's mind, and she will eventually have to face them. In her debut film as a director, Marilyn Solaya portrays the sexist and repressive Cuba of the past, and she speaks from firsthand experience. As an actress she was part of the cast of Strawberry and Chocolate, and in one of the sequences of her film she recalls the riots that broke out between the audience and the police at that time. She directs an intense drama inspired by a true story that she had already brought to the big screen in 2010 with the multi-award-winning documentary En el Cuerpo Equivocado.
