  • Returning to his home in 1925 to an island off the Cuban coast, an ex-con brings a silent film projector and a print of Robin Hood with him. All the islanders flock to enjoy this new experience. But with revolution in the air, repeated viewings of the film give it a new meaning in the eyes of its audience: they see a drama in which they, as underdogs, rise up against the capitalists, represented by the island's unpopular landowners.


  • Originally released as a motion picture in 1994.
  • DVD, region 2.
  • In Spanish.
