Viva Cuba - 2005 Cuban film by Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti. Malú is from an upper-class family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background is coarse and common-place. Jorgito's mother, a poor socialist proud of her family's social standing, places a similar restriction on her son. What neither woman recognizes is the immense strength of the bond between Malú and Jorgito. When the children learn that Malú's mother is planning to leave Cuba, they decide to run away and travel to the other side of the island to find Malú's father and persuade him against signing the forms that would allow it. Stars Malú Tarrau Broche and Jorge Milo. In Spanish with optional English subtitles, unrated, 80 minutes.
