Lista Quinta

Fishermen from the ‘fifth list’ are the economic backbone and largest labour force of all fishing communities in Cuba.

Fishing is their sustenance, culture and life. At the same time, they acknowledge that the future of fishing depends on the balance between their economic needs, environmental preservation, governmental will, impact of climate change and other cultural factors. Several stakeholders take part in this story, narrated by voices from five different coastal communities in Cuba.

Los pescadores de la ‘lista quinta’ son el pilar económico de Cuba y la mayor fuerza laboral de todas las comunidades pescadoras de la isla. La pesca es su sustento, su cultura y su modo de vivir. Al mismo tiempo, reconocen que el futuro de la pesca depende de un equilibrio entre sus necesidades económicas, la preservación ambiental, la voluntad gubernamental, el impacto del cambio climático, y otros factores culturales. Varios actores hacen parte de esta historia, la cual es narrada por voces de cinco comunidades costeras diferentes en Cuba.

Celebrating Cuban film and culture in Havana’s twin city of Glasgow

Our seventh edition focuses on the resourcefulness and extraordinariness of Cuba during one of the toughest points in its history in a hybrid Festival of online and live screenings.

Highlights include a Friday evening programme of films and discussion relating to Cuba’s unique approach to sustainability. Rebecca Heidenberg, Director of Queens of the Revolution will join us for a live streamed Q&A on Sunday night to discuss her portrait of a cultural centre that paved the road for LGBTQ+ rights in Cuba. Our featured director this year is acclaimed filmmaker Arturo Sotto and we will screen four of his films including the film noir Nido de Mantes / Mantis Nest.

Online Festival Passes, costing £15 / £7.50 allow access to all our online films, with an additional cost of £0/£2/£4/£6/£8 for live events at CCA on a pay-what-you-can basis.
