One of the boldest films to come out of Cuba in recent years, Marilyn Solaya’s feature film debut, His Wedding Dress (Vestido de Novia), won the Audience Award at two of the most important Spanish-language film festivals: Havana and Málaga.
The film is set in 1994, the worst year of Cuba’s so-called special period, which began with the collapse of the Soviet Union. The revelation of the transexual identity of one of the film’s main characters is the springboard for a story of love and hate that delves into the machismo prevalent in present-day patriarchal Cuban society.
