I'm always happy when the Cuban community steps up when asked and they have not dissapointed so far.
There's a beautiful documentary called Cubamerican. There will be two screenings next week here in Los Angeles:
Friday October 11th at 7pm and 9pm • Gene Autry Museum, Los Angeles
From the Cubamerican site:
CUBAMERICAN is the stirring story of how the Cuban Revolution shattered the Cuban family. Spanning the past 60 years of Cuban history, the film evokes this tragedy and its universal themes of loss, freedom, assimilation, struggle and triumph through the stories of Cuban exiles that have achieved acclaim in diverse fields in the U.S.A. and beyond, rendering a mosaic of a bittersweet exile experience. A pro-immigrant story that grapples with the agony of displacement, contributes rumination on the future of Cuba, and highlights the absolute need for all of the world's people to be able to freely exercise their fundamental human rights; CUBAMERICAN is an insightful and powerful experience.
