Description Produced by Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industrias Cinematográficos (ICAIC). 1968. ISBN: ? Summary Made in Cuba, Lucia tells three stories of three periods in Cuban history, each featuring a heroine named Lucia. The first playlet takes place in 1895: Lucia #1 (Raquel Revlizita) neglects her husband in order to become involved in the war against Spain -- and incidentally, with a handsome young insurgent. The second story transpires in 1932: Lucia #2 (Eslina Nunez), a divorced mother, aids in overthrowing the corrupt Cuban dictator. The third story is set somewhat indeterminately during the Castro regime. Our third Lucia (Adela Legra) is, like her predecessors, a free-thinker and a rebel, who finally stands up to her particular oppressor: her loutish husband.
