La muerte de un burócrata - Death of a Bureaucrat, Titón - Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Cuba 1966
The story begins with the death of a model worker, who is buried with his labor card as a badge of honor. However, his widow is told she needs that card to claim the benefits she is entitled. The story then takes several surreal turns, as the family of the dead man try to recover the precious card from the grave.

Memorias del subdesarrollo - Memories of Underdevelopment, Titón - Tomás Guttiérez Alea, Cuba 1968
Following the revolution, Sergio, an upper middle-class Cuban from Havana finds himself alone when his wife and the rest of his family flee the island to settle down in Miami. Struggling to adjust to the new situation, to the seclusion and the new class relationships, he continues to live his life, goes through a pathetic love storie, yet is unable to conceal the background that seems so much at odds with the new order.

Lucía, Humberto Solás, Cuba 1968
Humberto Solás interpretes the theme of the hundred years' struggle in an entirely novel way to create an epic in three separate episodes: each centred around a woman called Lucía, which takes place in a different period of Cuban history, corresponding to the three stages of Colonialism, Neocolonialism and Socialist Revolution.
