"Letters from the Park"
Directed by Tomas Gutierriz Alea
Set in Matanzas, Cuba,
1913, this is the enchanting story of two young people too shy to pursue the intimacy they
both seek. Each seek the services of a local poet to write love letters to each other. The
poet writes the letters to make some extra money but also to unburden himself of the
unbounded love he feels but for which he has no outlet. When the young woman of the couple
becomes the object of his affection, he is confused and faced with a moral and emotional
dilemma in this surprising and sweet romance. Based on an original story by Gabriel Garcia
Marquez, who also co-wrote the screenplay. Spanish with English subtitles.
