Quinoscopio

Cuba, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Juan Padron, Joaquin Lavado

'Quino' is the contracted form of Joaquin, the first name of a caricaturist who is well known and loved throughout Latin America.

"The film is not only graphically accomplished, its gags are also very funny. Despite a few old chestnuts, I have seldom seen such a funny cartoon."
