ABSTRACT Fernando Pérez reflects on making films in his native Cuba during the past fifteen years, a time of dramatic change on the island. His trilogy of recent films—Madagascar, Life is to Whistle and Havana Suite—provide a window into present-day Cuba while looking out onto the future. These works have earned Fernando Pérez the reputation as Cuba's most important filmmaker living today.
