While Clemente is looking for the girl's mother, Sofía cares for the baby and looks after the moneylender's house.

Old House

Whitney Humanities Center, 53 Wall St., New Haven, CT

Residing outside of his native Cuba, he returns to encounter a past that is almost intact: secrets and old grudges. Misunderstandings of his revealed sexual orientation force him to stay in the old house where times seems to have stood still. New England premiere.

4:00 pm

Ivan's Wife

Whitney Humanities Center, 53 Wall St., New Haven, CT

Ivan (40) is living with the young Natalia (15) in an isolated house, a place he dominates and rules. As her powerful sexuality begins to emerge, sunlight leaks into her room through the closed curtains, breaking the atmosphere of repression and control in which she is submerged. The house then becomes an open battlefield, a space in which Ivan and Natalia reach unexpected degrees of intimacy, conditioned at the same time by the isolation from the outer world they are experiencing, the boundaries of captivity, her craving for freedom, and above everything the extinction of all possible morality. International premiere.
