Tomás Gutiérrez Alea and Juan Carlos Tabío’s Fresa y chocolate (Strawberry and Chocolate) made Academy Award history when the film earned a Best Foreign Language Film nomination. The film – which centers on a cultivated, homosexual and skeptical young man who falls in love with a young heterosexual communist full of prejudices and doctrinary ideas – is the first and only Cuban film to be nominated in the category.
