Music of the Spheres
La Música de la Esferas
Directed by Marcel Beltrán
Cuban artist and filmmaker Marcel Beltrán’s eloquent nonfiction feature pays homage to his parents’ enduring love while pondering his country’s turbulent history.
Beltrán’s father Mauricio and mother Regina met in the 1980s. Equally committed to socialist ideals, they started a life together, even though Regina’s father rejected Mauricio on account of his race. Beltrán draws out what was sacrificed as his parents forged into the austerity of the 1990s, simultaneously confronting the fraught politics of both family and nation.
