Digital Gym Cinema says
Cuban LGBT drama and SDLFF favorite returns to San Diego! A young hairdresser (Héctor Medina) clashes with his estranged father (Jorge Perugorría) when his dream of performing in drag comes true.

“A genuine crowd-pleaser that packs at emotional wallop.” - The Hollywood Reporter

VIVA stars Héctor Medina as Jesus, a young hairdresser working at a Havana nightclub that showcases drag performers, who dreams of being a performer himself. Encouraged by his mentor, Mama (Luis Alberto García), Jesus finally gets his chance to take the stage. But when his estranged father Angel (Jorge Perugorría) abruptly reenters his life, his world is quickly turned upside down. As father and son clash over their opposing expectations of each other, VIVA becomes a love story as the men struggle to understand one another and reconcile as a family.

Critic Quotes: “Havana’s crumbling trapped-in-time beauty also plays a starring role, but it’s Medina who provides the movie’s raw, tender heart.” - Entertainment Weekly
“A startlingly beautiful movie.” - Wall Street Journal

“Vivid and fresh.” - The Guardian
