Is That You? is the first psychological horror film to be made in and about Cuba. Directed by Rudy Riverón Sánchez, a Cuban filmmaker now living in London, UK, this impressive debut features a confident atmosphere and a spooky sense of the rot of trapped lives. 13-year old Lili lives with her parents in a modest shack in the Cuban countryside. Her father, Eduardo, is the undisputed ruler of the house, forcing his wife and daughter to live a meager, suffocating life under his unequivocal authority. But when he suddenly goes missing one day, Lili feels lost: instead of the newfound freedom his absence should grant the family he left behind, Lili doesn’t know how to live her life without the influence of her monstrous father around. In an act of desperation, Lili carries out a spiritual ritual in the hopes of bringing him back—but something goes terribly wrong and the girl’s life is turned into a nightmare, leading her to uncover a disturbing truth about her father’s disappearance.
