This three-part feature melds Cuban revolutionary fervor with feminist and social politics and was the film that catapulted world-famous director Humberto Solás into the international spotlight. Lucía traces episodes in the lives of three Cuban women, each named Lucía, from three different historical periods: about 1900 during the Cuban war of independence with Spain; the 1930s; and the 1960s.
“Easily the finest film to come out of Cuba in the 1960s . . . Way ahead of its time in linking sexual and political oppression.” —Time Out London
