Vicenta B

Latin Wave

The third film by director Carlos Lechuga (Santa & Andrés) presents the story of Vicenta, an Afro-Cuban woman who can see into the future. She lives harmoniously with her only son, until he decides to leave the country. Thrown into a profound existential crisis, Vicenta departs on a voyage to the heartland of a country where everyone seems to have lost faith. Anchored by an extraordinary performance from Linnett Hernández Valdés, Vicenta B is a compelling parable about healing and the power of letting go.
