In the 1940s and ’50s, Havana was a movie-mad city, reportedly boasting more movie theatres than even New York, and more movie-theatre seats per capita than perhaps any city in the world. Overwhelmingly, these theatres showed Hollywood films. Featuring original interviews and stunning footage of some of Havana’s most famous movie houses, Errol Flynn’s Ghost: Hollywood in Havana chronicles the enduring cultural impact of American movies in Cuba, while recalling the last great real-life adventure of Hollywood swashbuckler Errol Flynn: the Cuban revolution.

Winner of a Gold Remi Award at the 2019 WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival.
