Mariela and Orlando ‘Pita’ live in a poor Cuban fishing village. Pita is a proud fisherman and a linchpin for the local community with his cheerful character and his willingness to share. Mariela on the other hand is frustrated by the lack of opportunities and often yearns to move away – especially after her brother flees to the US. Dominated by the ever changing blues of the Caribbean, this documentary is even-handed and sympathetic – director Kim Hopkins ‘doesn’t play the middleman and fully trusts the subjects with her platform’ – POV Magazine.
