Tomás Gutiérrez Alea
Birth: Dec. 11, 1928
Death: Apr. 16, 1996

Motion-Picture Director. Born in Havana, he became Cuba's most popular and influential filmaker. Some of his work mildly satirized life under the Castro regime. Alea is probably best known for directing "Strawberry and Chocolate" (1994), the first Cuban movie to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film. His other credits include "La Caperucita Roja" (1947), "Una Confusión Cotidiana" (1950), "The Twelve Chairs" (1962), "La Muerte de un Burócrata" (1966), "Memories of Underdevelopment" (1968), "Cartas del Parque" (1989), and "Guantanamera" (1995). His wife was actress Mirta Ibarra.  (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
