Las unidades de cine-móvil del ICAIC visitan un apartado lugar de la provincia de Oriente. Impresiones y opiniones de los campesinos de esa zona, que ven cine por primera vez.
A mobile cinema unit brings Chaplin's Modern Times to a small village in the Sierra Maestra mountains. The catch is that the peasants here have never seen a movie before. Cortazar captures, with an inspired simplicity, the unit's excitement at bringing the films and the peasant's anticipation. In interviews, several of the more worldly peasants boast about how they've been to the cinema, but, caught in their lie, can't explain what it is. In a series of priceless interviews, Cortazar asks the peasants what they think a movie is like -- their answers are a brilliant range of imaginings. One old woman thinks it will be like life in pictures; another says films are, she has heard, about heroes and romance, with real horses.
