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 »
I just saw it and loved it. In addition to what is posted above, it is funny! I tried to Google what had become of Yuliet Ortega, even the 2007 DVD release left it a mystery. I had no luck finding her fate. I did find a 1999 article about her, then living in Mexico City and without any aspirations or evident employment. She did not take the modeling job mentioned in the film. She was just bumming around the DF and clubbing. In the "Part 3" addendum to the 2007 release, her grandmother refused to talk to the director. Yuliet appeared briefly but revealed nothing. Note: I had no problem with the subtitles (mentioned above) and there were subtitles to the "Part 3". My only complaint is that I couldn't get Spanish subtitles to work, only English.
