VOICES OF THE SEA

  • Detroit Institute of the Arts - Lecture Hall 5200 Woodward Avenue Detroit, MI, 48202 (map)

Presented as part of the FREEP Film Festival

DIR Kim Hopkins | UK/US | 2018 | 98 min

From producer and Detroit native Capella Fahoome comes the story of this tiny, remote coastal village in Cuba where poverty reigns. And for all the talk of normalizing U.S. relations, nobody believes anything will ever change. We see the restless longing for greater opportunity – embodied by young mother of four, Mariela – contrasted against the realism and pride of the film's voice of reason, her much older husband, fisherman Orlando. An escape to pursue the American Dream preoccupies almost everyone, but Orlando espouses a different philosophy, passing on his fishing craft to their eldest son. Michigan premiere.  In English and Spanish with English subtitles.
