Inside Out LGBT Film Festival says
VIVA
Dir. Paddy Breathnach
Ireland/Cuba 2015 (100:00)

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.

Executive produced by Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro, VIVA is filled with "superb... pitch perfect performances" (The Hollywood Reporter) and is driven by "a real sense of tenderness" (The Guardian).
