Cubanas, Mujeres en Revolución is a film by Maria Torrellas produced by Resumen Latinoamericano. It has been shown in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Panama, Venezuela, Spain, France, Canada, England, Turkey, Australia, Sweden, and in the US in San Francisco and Oakland, CA, Minneapolis, New York City and Washington DC.

This film evokes the continuous role of women in the Revolution, both in the guerrilla struggle and in the construction of the new Cuban society through the testimonies of heroines such as Vilma Espín, Celia Sánchez and Haydée Santamaría, the founding figures of the Revolution, and also of contemporary women from different sectors of Cuban society. Reflections and life experiences show how these women were nourished by the values built in the revolutionary struggle in the late 1950s.
