SIN LA HABANA
In Canadian filmmaker Kaveh Nabatian's Havana- and Montreal-set romance, written in collaboration with Cuban hip hop producer and academic Pablo Herrera, Leonardo (dancer Yonah Acosta), a classical ballerino, and Sara (Evelyn Castroda O'Farrill), an ambitious lawyer, are a young Afro-Cuban couple living in Havana and trying to make ends meet, all while pursuing their passions and aspiring to make it to the top of their respective professions. When Leonardo loses his position in a local ballet company and is forced to eke out a living teaching salsa to tourists, he and Sara concoct a plan to seduce one of the students – a young Canadian-Iranian divorcée named Nasim (Aki Yaghoubi) — and get Leonardo a ticket out of Cuba via a bogus marriage. As Leonardo makes it to snowy Montreal with his new flame — who has her own demons to battle — a truly international love triangle unfolds against a beautiful backdrop of Cuban music, dance and spiritual traditions.
