Fresa y chocolate (Strawberry and Chocolate, 1993, Cuba)

The story takes place in Havana in 1979. David (Vladimir Cruz) is a university student who meets Diego (Jorge Perugorría), a gay artist unhappy with the Castro regime’s attitude toward the LGBT community as well as the censored conceptualization of culture. David’s homophobic classmate, Miguel (Francisco Gattorno), plans to use David to spy on Diego, a person whom they see as aberrant and dangerous to the communist cause; Diego, for his part, initiates the friendship with sexual intentions.
