Marti and I

8 min - Cuba, USA Juan Carlos Zaldivar

Jose Marti is the greatest literary and political figure that Cuba has ever produced. This short documentary film reclaims Marti from a mythical, patriarchal grave by hinting at the less publicized associations and facts about Marti's life: his "brotherly" love for his best friend, with whom he lived for five years in exile. Marti and I" gives us an important reinterpretation of Cuba's most famous political and literary icon in order to rescue the man behind it.
