Description

The triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959 not only dramatically changed the islands political and economic institutions, but it also drastically altered the most important facet of Cuban society itself: the family. Within the past fifty years, thousands of Cubans have left Cuba, some for political reasons while others for economic ones, and have concentrated primarily in Miami, Florida. Decades of mutual mistrust, suspicion, and hostility has marked the relationship between Cubans on the island and Cuban-Americans in Miami. However, these deeply divided and bitter relationships are changing as more Cubans from both sides are coming together to reconnect and reconcile. This presentation will be about the film that I have made that explores this topic and will include a trailer to the film that I will be screening later in May!
