A todos nos gusta el plátano
A todos nos gusta el plátano, Rubén H. Bermúdez, Spain, 2021, 61’
Presented by Rubén H. Bermúdez
It is a warm and mature ensemble film, in which the director hands the camera over to seven black people in Spain to have them make a film. Self-representation, doubts, in an intimate, fragmentary and necessarily partial portrait. Skins, bodies filmed in private, that speak, listen to each other, and expose themselves. A movie that makes you want to live.
