This film shines a spotlight on Cuba and its people, providing contemporary context for a country that has experienced limited growth since its revolution in the 1950s. This raw, unvarnished film shows how the Cuban people live their lives amidst political unrest and economic inequality during a time when the country is on the cusp of cultural, social and economic change in the wake of President Obama’s 2014 announcement that the U.S. would begin normalizing relations. What emerges is a portrait of a people struggling to get by, but determined to have their voices heard through their words, art and music.

Directed by Olatz López Garmendia and executive produced by Oscar®-nominated director Julian Schnabel.
