Viva

15 yrs 100 minutes 2016 7.3

The young boy Jesus lives in the shadow of his colleagues at a beat down drag queen club in Havana. He dreams of standing in the spotlight and one day, under guidance of the club owner Mama, he gets the chance to be on stage. His stage persona Viva is a great success, but it will all be put on test when he meets his absent, and conservative, father. Göteborgposten’s Maria Domellöf-Wik rates the film 4 out of 5 and describes it as a “powerful, well-acted story with heartbreaking messages about daring to be self-sufficient, with a good script and interesting supporting characters”.
