About the Movie
Street-smart Ivy League students are outcast at their elite school, band together and adventure to the enigmatic Caribbean island of Cuba, whose population is 60% Black. Their journey through the streets of Havana and Santiago reveals enthralling scenes of Cuban life including hip hop performances, block parties, and candid spontaneous encounters with AfroCuban youth. As they film their experience, the travelers discover connections between Cuban and American perspectives on human rights, race, and revolution.
I was ignorant about Cuba outside of Ricky Ricardo until I saw this film. The documentary inspired me to learn more to the extent that I actually travelled to Cuba. Because of Obama's recent stance on normalizing US-Cuba relations, everyone should see this film. If I could give it a hundred stars I would.
