*****Sin Alas* is an epic love story set against the rich social fabric 
of Cuba’s past and present. The film centers on a story of lost love 
between Cuban writer Luis Vargas and a famous dancer named Isabella 
Muñoz. The trajectory of Luis’ life unfolds against the backdrop of 
modern Cuban history, from his roots in the idyllic countryside town of 
Hershey, Cuba, where his father worked for the American chocolate giant, 
to his current urban existence in Havana struggling to keep a small 
family together amidst economic and emotional hardships. Rhythmically 
punctuated with an original Afro-Latin score by Aruán Ortiz, this subtle 
and beautiful 16mm film explores the country and the emotional lives of 
its characters through a sumptuous collage of memories, places and 
people. ****
