Cinematographer Carlos Macovich met Yuliet Ortega, a young "jinetera" (prostitute) from Havana, when he shot a video in Cuba, starring model Fabiola Quiroz. When he realized that the two women had not seen their respective fathers for many years, he made this documentary, which is also a reflection on the process of filmmaking. Written by

When Yuliet Ortega sees her name written on the screen as "Juliette", the way director Carlos Marcovich thought it was written, she angrily writes on top of it with her name the way she spells it, so it reads on screen "¿Quién diablos es Yuliet?" - arguably the correct title. See more »
A magnificent look at Cuba from an unique point of view. The photography is superb, the direction as well. Plus, this woman's beauty is as powerful as her story. A must for all movie lovers interested in refreshing their senses.
