Jóvenes Frente al Espejo (JoFE), is a screening of short films produced by young Cuban women filmmakers in the last ten years, many of whom are still enrolled in film schools in Cuba. The showing has been organized by the young filmmaker Sisy Gómez Peña and curated by cinema critic Gustavo Arcos.
The program includes short documentaries, animated films and drama reflecting different aesthetics and conceptual visions, but all pertinent to present-day conflicts. The stories, often based on the personal experiences of the filmmakers, portray children or teenagers trying to make headway in their search for happiness, love or the pursuit of a dream.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Ms. Sómez Peña (pictured above, holding camera), and moderated by Cuban-American playwright and filmmaker Iván Acosta.
