Memorias Del Desarrollo (Memories fo Overdevelopment)

(Cuba, 2010) 113 min. Directed by Miguel Coyula.An intellectual leaves the Cuban revolution and 'underdevelopment' behind only to find himself at odds with the ambiguities of his new life in the 'developed' world. A potrait of alienation, of an outsider with no clear-cut politics or ideology. A stranger in a strange land struggling with old age, sexual desire and ultimately the impossibility for the individual to belong to any society.
