Screening of Masks (documentary about the drag queen culture in Cuba) and Q&A with director Lázaro González

In the macho world of Cuban culture, Margot and Roxana stand out. They are two of the country's best-known drag queens. This film takes an anthropological approach to documenting Margot and Roxana. We watch Riubel Alarcon and Pedro Manuel Gonzalez, in their respective cities of Havana and Santa Clara, as they go through the process of transforming themselves for the stage while discussing their personal evolutions, the fight for equality and respect and the trials and dangers that lie ahead. Both share insights into the art of drag and its connections to the broader struggle for equality.
