Two Scottish sisters, one a left-wing activist, the other a popular party girl, travel to Cuba to scatter their late father’s ashes. In losing and trying to reclaim their father’s ashes, the bickering sisters set off on a journey that takes them through romance, danger and the discovery of old family secrets.
The Extraordinary Journey of Celeste Garcia, an invitation to another planet, Inocencia – a true story about the unjust murder of Cuban medical students and Beyond the Hurricanes – a documentary about the resilience of the Cuban people in the face of extreme weather cycles.
(Hugo Rivalta and Eirene Houston, Directors HGFF)

How a Revolutionary People have Survived in a Post-Soviet World, a live Cuban cookery class with Masterchef winner Gary Maclean and a live discussion with Cuban-based film collective Belly of the Beast.
