Meet the stars of Viva, Héctor Medina and Luis Alberto García, at a special screening. Shot in Havana Medina (Camionero) plays Jesus, a young hairdresser working at a Havana nightclub that showcases drag performers, dreams of being a performer himself. Encouraged by his mentor, Mama (Luis Alberto García), Jesus finally gets his chance to take the stage. But when his estranged father Angel (Jorge Perugorría) abruptly reenters his life, his world is quickly turned upside down as father and son clash over their opposing expectations of each other, Viva becomes a love story as the men struggle to understand one another and reconcile as a family. Executive produced by Benicio Del Toro, Viva was a hit at the 2015 Telluride Film Festival.
