Special guest Leon Ichaso presenting
The monotonous life of Miami radio personality Remigio Gallegos changes abruptly when he answers the phone to find out that a son he has never met is waiting for him at the immigration office. Along with his mother’s cross, the young man brings with him a haunted past. Directed by León Ichaso (El Cantante, Crossover Dreams), Paraiso explores generational and class divides within the Cuban exile community in southern Florida. Part thriller, drama, and existential romance, the film explodes with heart, color, music, and a desperate tale.

Directed by Leon Ichaso. With Miguel Gutiérrez, Adrián Mas, Tamara Melián, and Lili Rentería.

In Spanish with English subtitles.
