In a Whisper
Time Out says
Two childhood friends who emigrated from Cuba rekindle their friendship years later.
Winner of Best Feature-Length Documentary at the International Documentary Film Festival
Amsterdam, In a Whisper is directed by – and centred on – childhood friends Heidi Hassan
and Patricia Pérez. The two women grew up together in Cuba with Che Guevara’s communist
ideals, but after experiencing disappointment, each emigrated and lost contact. The film follows (and itself fosters) Hassan and Pérez’s rekindled friendship through unrelentingly honest video calls during which the pair discuss freedom, friendship and their own plights with alienation and nostalgia for a country that ceased to exist.
