With What Ass Does the Cockroach Sit?/¿Con qué culo se sienta la cucaracha? (2004)

Can animals report the news better than humans? Are they more truthful? Or do they too have an agenda? And when La Cucarachita Martina anchors the news, on what ass does she sit? In this hilarious, poignant tale of a cockroach's adventures in Havana and Miami, Carmelita's wacky world becomes an absurdist collage of animals, old time Cuban musicians, little Elian, and the ins and outs of the never-changing policy debate between Washington and Havana.
