(2016), 78 minutes, United States
This film by Cuban filmmaker, Orlando Rojas, presents a highly personal look at Rosario Suárez, the former prima ballerina of the Ballet Naciónal de Cuba. Due to a rivalry with the company’s longtime founder and director Alicia Alonso, she is rarely permitted to perform on the weekends but is showcased on the ballet’s Thursday programs, earning her the titular sobriquet la reina de los jueves – The Queen of Thursdays.
