MILA CAOS INDIEWIRE

"Not too many short films identify both Cuba and Germany as their country of origin, but Simon Jaikiriuma Paetau’s 18-minute “Mila Caos” does just that.  Centered around an illegal underground cabaret in Havana, the short begins with a police paddywagon filled with trash-talking drag queens and ends with a show stopping performance from our hero.  The relationship between the boy and his disapproving mother, an artist herself, is the real heart and soul of this captivating story.  Director Paetau is a student at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany."
