Does anyone have information about possible forthcoming availability of Cuban director
Fernando Perezīs SUITE HABANA in the U.S.? IMDB doesn't show a U.S. distributor at
present. Even with a distributor, it would not likely make it to Greenville
theaters. This was the opening film at San Sebastian International Film Festival in
Sept. 2003.

A local librarian who just returned from Cuba this morning says this film was
mentioned several times while she was there. She was told that it is a "must see,"
preferably in a theatrical setting. She and I would both like to see it--and would
likely recommend it for the local public library collection once a video version is
available. It has been described as a dialogue-free documentary of a cross-section of
ten residents of Havana, following them through their day to musical accompaniment.
