A FILM BY CHRISTIAN J. FERNANDEZ
ESTA NINA LINDA
Desperate to escape their native Cuba in a time of turmoil, Marciel and his young sister, Perla, journey in the cover of nightfall, boarding a makeshift raft. Cobbled together by twisted metal and foam and propelled by an old Soviet car engine, their vessel is the only thing that stands between them and the open sea. Esta Niña Linda is a short film about survival, and the story of a brother and sister's relationship as they trek 90 miles in search of the U.S.
