Viva is an extraordinary film that captures the struggle of a young hairdresser named Jesus, played by Héctor Medina, who is trying to make it as a drag queen in Havana, Cuba.

Today we chat with Viva’s director, Irish filmmaker Paddy Breathnach about making a film about a young man who is finding his voice in the drag queen scene in Cuba, a country trapped in time.

    Just saw this film on Netflix, and decided to listen to this interview with the director again. It’s hard to believe that this very special film was made in just four weeks. In addition to the powerful emotional and cultural content, this is a very beautiful looking film. It is definitely worth watching. Thanks, Fausto and Marc, for putting a spotlight on a film I probably would not have known about otherwise.
