ON THE ROOF (El techo) - Jan 25 @ 7:00 pm 
Patricia Ramos / Cuba / 75 min / 2017 / Spanish with English subtitles 
In this feel-good ensemble dramedy, a flat rooftop in an old Havana neighborhood is the natural habitat for three friends: Yasmani is an amateur pigeon fancier who is too shy to talk to a girl he likes; Victor José has convinced himself of his Sicilian descent and now prefers to go by Vito; Anita is five months pregnant and pretends she doesn't care who the father is. In the midst of their boredom, they decide to set up their own business.
