Por Primera Vez (For The First Time)

This nice little documentary is about how the people of Los Munos (in the Baracoa municipality of Cuba) watched a movie for the first time.

It’s quite something to see their faces light up over Charlie Chaplin’s antics onscreen.

I'm the webmaster and author at Freespanishshortfilms.com. I started this website as a complement to my studies in the Spanish language, but honestly, it just gave me an excuse to watch lots of great short films (like the ones in my author's picks section). I also blog and write short stories.
