Set in Cuba in the late ‘70’s, ‘Strawberry and Chocolate’ is about a young communist man meeting an older, gay, catholic man and learning to open his mind and accept someone who has polar opposite beliefs to him. The director wanted a very naturalistic setting, so I worked to create a set that reflected the style Cuba in that period, with details to express the particular interests and beliefs of the main characters.
