Miami favorite Fernando Pérez (Havana Suite) returns to the Festival with this story of two modern habaneros whose deepest desires steer them in very different directions. Middle-aged busboy Miguel dreams of leaving Havana for New York, but waits for a visa seems like it will never arrive. Diego, who is HIV-positive and in poor health, dreams only of staying alive. These men share a home, but while one lies low the other strives to stay open to whatever possibilities life still holds.
Last Days in Havana poignantly portrays lives lived in suspension—and the way waiting and hoping can alter how we inhabit the moment.
