Mamis: A Family Portrait


19m Cuba 2013


Being gay in Cuba has never being easy. For women it's even more difficult, they have to face the double standard of being women and gay in a society with a high level of machismo. Even more complicated is being a lesbian mother. They don't have access to adoption or IV, but in Cuba there is always a way. Mamis is a story about Violeta, Isabel, Tamara and Yoana: some Cuban women who found their own way. Women who never liker to ask for permission to live their lives, despite the prejudices and rules of Cuban society.
