Juan Padron in Elpidio Valdes

Elpidio Valdes

1980 NR

Acclaimed Cuban director Juan Padrón sends communist cartoon hero Elpidio Valdés -- Cuba's most popular animated character -- on a series of adventures to help members of the disenfranchised working class stand up to the world's most tyrannical capitalists. Every time this pint-sized protagonist takes down another greedy businessman for the sake of the downtrodden, you'll find yourself rooting for the little guy.
