Si me comprendieras

A well-known Cuban film director embarks upon the search for a black woman dancer and singer to play the central dramatic role in his next film project- a musical comedy. Rather than opting for an experienced actress, he feels he needs the freshness and spontaneity of inexperience- someone young with an urge for success. He sets about searching the Cuban Film Institute's (ICAIC's) extras files and, with the enthusiastic support of friends and the aid of a small video camera, he scours the streets of Havana in search of his actress. A film by Rolando Diaz. Presented at the International Latino Film Festival held in the San Francisco Bay Area. 1998. 87 min.
