Join us for a screening of Antes Que Llegue el Ferry (Before the Ferry Arrives, Cuba, 2018, NR, 85 minutes), a dark comedy portraying a near-future Havana that is still in the midst of the restoration of U.S.-Cuba relations, as part of the 16th annual, multi-venue OLA Film Festival curated by the Organización Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island (OLA).

The program includes a bi-lingual (Spanish/English) docent-led tour in the galleries, where photographer Tria Giovan will give a short talk on her photos from the 1993 series The Cuba Archive, currently on view in Artists Choose Artists. The film and a talk follow a cocktail reception with special hors d’oeuvres from the Golden Pear Café.

Antes Que Llegue el Ferry (Recommended for ages 14 and older)
Directors: Juan Caunedo Domínguez, Vladimir García Herrera, Raúl Escobar

An Official Selection of the 2018 Ventana Sur and BAFICI film festivals, and the 2019 Málaga Spanish Film Festival, Antes Que Llegue El Ferry—directed by Juan Caunedo Domínguez, Vladimir García Herrera, Raúl Escobar Delgado—explores the sense of expectation and ambiguity experienced by Cubans when it was announced in 2015 that, after more than 50 years, a ferry service would resume between that country and the United States. Bold in form and structure and mixing elements of animation with live action, experimental and documentary film, this debut of the three directors captures a time of uncertainty and vertigo as Cuba continues to wait for the first ferry to arrive.

Guests for the evening have another opportunity to experience Cuba through the photographs of Tria Giovan (American, b. 1961). Giovan travelled extensively to Cuba during the economic depression of the Special Period (1990–1996), shot over 25,000 images, and created The Cuba Archive—a body of work that captured the subtleties and complexities of the country’s day-to-day life. The photographs reveal resiliency, creative defiance through aesthetics, and the unquashable human spirit amid oppression. The photograph Tres Muchachas-El Malecon, Havana, Cuba (1993), is on view for the first time in a museum.
