Voices Of The Sea

Tuesday 13th April 8:00 p.m – Thornbury Picture House – Located at 802 High St, Thornbury VIC 3071

Revealing stark realities for the poorest of rural Cubans with unique access and empathy, this is the story of a 30-something mother of four longing for a better life. The tension between wife and ageing husband – one desperate to leave, the other content to stay – builds into a high stakes family drama after her brother and the couple’s neighbours escape.
