The exceptional selections that will be shown at the first Sonoma County Cuban Film Festival
are as varied and vibrant as the country they represent. The five, feature-length screenings at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts include an animated adventure set in the Cuban jazz clubs of the 1940s (Chico & Rita
), a horror-satire about a zombie-killing entrepreneur (Juan of the Dead
) and a true-to-life romance that turns complicated
(The Mole's Den
), with director Alfredo Ureta in attendance. Short films, musical events and more are also part of the Sonoma County Cuban Film Festival, taking place Friday and Saturday, July 24-25, at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, 282 S. High St., Sebastopol. $10-$50. 707.829.4797.
