The 50-minute “Madagascar” has the resonance and eloquence of the best poetry, as it deftly turns an adolescent’s search for identity into a metaphor for post-revolutionary Cuba. Laura is a professor at a shabby, stultifying college. Her daughter, Laurita, stops going to school, wishes to move to Madagascar and quickly races through several phases.
