Director: Tomas G Alea
Cast: Nelson Villagra, Silvano Roy, Luis Alberto Garcia

In 'The Last Supper', a count finds himself an outsider in a Cuba about to undergo an agricultural revolution. The film is full of telling parallels, flecked with humor and at the same time mercilessly dissecting the Christian notion the suffering is pre-ordained.

A sugar plantation in the late eighteenth century, Cuba.

Ash Wednesday: Don Manuel, the mulatto overseer, cuts an ear off Sebastian, a recaptured runaway slave.

Maundy Thursday
: The plantation owner, a weak but pious count, assumes the suffering of Christ, takes twelve slaves (including Sebastian), washes their feet and sets before them a sumptuous meal. In the course of the increasingly convivial evening, the count lectures the slaves - though not Sebastian who spits at his master's cautious question of his defense of the sanctity of pain and servitude. The slaves begin to reminisce and become obstreperous. The Count abuses Don Manuel drunkenly and falls asleep, while Sebastian relates a paradoxical parable in which Truth kills Lie and walks about the world wearing the latter's head.

Good Friday
: When Don Manuel forces them to work, the Count orders that the twelve slaves who dined with him should be hunted down and killed.

Easter Day
: The Count dedicates the site of a church to Don Manuel's memory. Sebastian, the only slave to have escaped, runs to the top of the hill.
