Description:
  Humberto, a documentary from Cuba, Explores the life and work of celebrated Cuban filmmaker ‪‎Humberto Solas‬, director of the seminal film "Lucia." Solas was a filmmaker, dreamer and beloved figure in Cuba and abroad. Five years after his death, colleagues, family and friends guide us on a tour of his feature films, his life and cultural imprint.

Director Carlos Barba Salva was a longtime student and assistant to Humberto Solás and this film is evidence of the effects of learning from such a gifted and powerful presence in the film industry. He wonderfully captured the career of a man who was not only talented in his field, but was a prominent figure for social change in Cuba. The timeline unfolds through a series of vignettes about his movies, beginning with Lucia and finishing with Barrio Cuba.

Each section features quotes and stories from actors, script writers, and producers who worked alongside Humberto to make his movies come to life. This unique biographical perspective allows the viewer to connect and feel the presence of such an outstanding director and leader in Cuban society. It is clear through the passionate, heartfelt, and sometimes amusing, stories that Humberto has left a large mark not only in Cuba, or cinema, but on those who knew him personally.
