Starring awarded Cuban actress, Laura de la Uz, La película de Ana was the great winner at the 34th International Latin American Film Festival held in Havana in 2012. The movie is a comedy and drama based on true events, dealing with prostitution, having to do things you don’t believe in, don’t want or like to do in exchange for benefits. It’s the story of an actress forced by circumstances to pretend and play a character-mask that enables her to express very authentic feelings and the truth.
