Odd People Out

Directed by Manuel Zayas
2004
Spain
54 mins

The award-winning feature-length documentary Odd People Out examines the process of marginalization, repression and denial of the gay community during the first two decades of the Cuban Revolution, through the eyes and voice of Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas. A counterpoint to the fictional Before Night Falls, Odd People Out constructs a kaleidoscopic depiction of Reinaldo’s life and of the Cuban gay community before and after the revolution. A unique testimony of a unique time and a unique artist, it combines rare archival material with early-aughts footage clandestinely shot in Cuba.
