ALICIA EN EL PUEBLO DE MARAVILLAS

In Memoriam Daniel Díaz Torres
A cultural assignment leads the drama expert Alicia to Maravillas (Wonders), a village which turns out to match Lewis Carrol’s Wonderland in its absurdity. The inhabitants of the obscure township are acting alarmingly strange and Alicia experiences one bizarre situation after another, until she comes to suspect that the mental asylum Satan is responsible for the weird on-goings. Through this real-life satire Daniel Diaz-Forres – himself an advocate of the revolution – levels criticism at the aberrations and the maldevelopments of the Cuban revolution. read more

Veggies (Vegetarians) fighting against advocates of grilled meat, macs (supporters of a macrobiotic diet) acting against ollies (primarily feed on dairy products).
