LUCIA (1969)

Film details


A three-part feature film dramatising three separate periods in the Cuban struggle for liberation in order to show the participation of Cuban women in that fight. In 1895, the first Lucia is embroiled in a tale of love and betrayal during Cuba's war of independence from Spain. In 1933, the second Lucia leaves her middle class family and becomes involved in the overthrow of the Cuban dictator Machado; and, in the 1960s, the third Lucia is taught how to read and write during Cuba's literacy campaign, and as a newlywed, confronts her husband's macho attitudes.
