Friday Film: Un Traductor
After the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, Malin, a Russian literature professor at The University of Havana, is sent to translate between Cuban doctors and children sent from the USSR for medical treatment. Torn from academia and forced into the relentlessly real world of medicine, Malin becomes increasingly depressed. Just as he adapts to his new job, the Berlin Wall falls and Cuba enters a deep economic crisis. But Malin is now so entrenched in the lives of the Chernobyl children that he doesn’t notice his young family suffering. He must find his way back to his wife and child through the lessons he learns at the hospital – and become a better person on the way. Not Rated. In Spanish and Russian with English subtitles. 107 minutes.
