Told through the haunting letters written by the acclaimed Cuban writer José Lezama Lima to his sister living in exile, Letters to Eloísa tells the remarkable story of one of Latin America’s most revered writers. Weaving together the public and the private, the literary and the political, the film reveals how Lezama’s voice, at first amplified by the revolution’s cultural policies, was ultimately silenced by the absence of creative freedom in Cuba during its most tumultuous decades.
