Life is to Whistle

Chandler Ullman Auditorium

Fernando Pérez, Director  1998 


“Like so many characters in Latin American literature, the three major characters in Fernando Perez's lush, hallucinatory film Life Is to Whistle walk around with an awareness of the supernatural that simultaneously inspires and oppresses them…. The director's master stroke is his portrayal of their internal conflicts as a metaphor for the political and economic anxieties gripping Cuba in the twilight of the Castro era. Life Is to Whistle … has many charms. Its surrealist imagery, inspired by Magritte paintings, lends it a thread of visual zaniness…” Stephen Holden, The New York Times.
