There seem to be a couple of entries related to Cuba that might interest you!

Cuban Zombies:

Fast, fun and hilarious, Alexander Brugués’s 2nd feature film, “Juan of the
Dead”,
gives a decidedly Cuban touch to the zombie genre when an outbreak
hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution. Juan and his friends
are determined to conquer the un-dead, reported by the government as being
unruly Americans continuing their quest of undermining the regime. Brugués’s
fresh take on the genre is both hilarious, and politically acute.

A Short Silent film:

Adriana Salazar Arroyo’s “Found Cuban Mounts” uses excerpts from Fidel
Castro’s “History Will Absolve Me” speech to determine her film’s rhythm,
tracking in reverse the journey of the revolutionaries
