Celeste García, a 60-year-old former schoolteacher and current guide at the Havana Planetarium, is looking for a life change. When a group of aliens land in Cuba offering earthlings a chance to visit their planet, Celeste signs up for the journey hoping for a better and more fulfilling life.
Alien landings and intergalactic travel are just some of the cosmic surprises in this charming work of surrealist sci-fi from Cuba. Fizzing with delight and the wonders of discovery, The Extraordinary Life of Celeste Garcia is a winning take on emancipation through the eyes of an unlikely heroine.
