Inspired by Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Daniel Díaz Torres's Alice in Wondertown is both an absurdist comedy and an allegory with a dark political undercurrent. Alice is a drama teacher who goes on a cultural mission to a small town where the most bizarre occurrences are commonplace. Mirrors become doors, circus animals walk the streets, and it seems anything can happen - and everyone except Alicia seems resigned to the situation. She discovers before long that the town's population is made up of officials and workers who have been fired for violating rules, minor or illusionary, and now cannot find their way out of this strange town. One of the most controversial films in the history of Cuba, Alice in Wondertown was banned by government authorities from Cuban theatres shortly after it's release, threatening the independence that the Cuban film industry hitherto had enjoyed.
