Havana Skate Days is an intimate portrait of Cuba and its current struggles told through the story of Havana’s nascent skate scene. The film follows Yojany Perez, a young, talented skateboarder trying to grow extreme sports in Cuba, and his tight-knit crew of skateboarders. The generational rift between Cuba’s millennials and older generations is exposed as the skaters struggle to carve a space for themselves in Cuba’s future and cope with the loss of their friends to the temptations of the outside world.
