“Canto Con el Alma”

After becoming enchanted with performers at a drag show, a young Cuban man named Jesus dreams of becoming a drag queen. Jesus, who works as a hairdresser, finds a mentor  – a man named Mama – to guide him on his journey. As Jesus learns the tricks of the trade and gets closer to his dream, his estranged father re-enters his life, leading to a bitter clash between the two. Set in Havana, “VIVA,” is the work of two Irish filmmakers: director Paddy Breathnach and writer Mark O’Halloran. The movie was one of the selections at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
