Cinematographer Carlos Macovich met Yuliet Ortega, a young "jinetera" (prostitute) from Havana, when he shot a video in Cuba, starring model Fabiola Quiroz. When he realized that the two women had not seen their respective fathers for many years, he made this documentary, which is also a reflection on the process of filmmaking.Written by

When Yuliet Ortega sees her name written on the screen as "Juliette", the way director Carlos Marcovich thought it was written, she angrily writes on top of it with her name the way she spells it, so it reads on screen "¿Quién diablos es Yuliet?" - arguably the correct title. See more »
This history is singular. About a Cuban model and her context. A kind of crazy movie. A person who has seen it can think that it´s very creative and unusual; but those people who have seen "Crumb!" (1994), know that Marcovich´s idea was not as creative as it seems. "Quién diablos es Juliette?" it´s fine, but not unique in its gender. "A quién diablos quiso plagiar?".
