Cuban Food Stories
Directed by Asori Soto
After a decade living in the United States, Soto returns to his homeland of Cuba to search for the missing flavors of his childhood – a journey to discover culinary traditions long thought lost due to the hardship that Cuba survived after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Havana Skate Days
Kristofer Ríos & Julian Moura-Busquets
An intimate portrait of Cuba and its current struggles told through the story of Havana’s nascent skate scene. 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.
Los Ultimos Frikis
Directed by Nicholas Brennan
The story of ZEUS, Cuba’s most popular heavy metal band, and their 30-year fight to be heard. When ZEUS formed in Havana in the 1980s, rock music was illegal and rockers were derisively called los frikis—the freaks. Fidel Castro’s communist government saw rock and roll as a mortal threat sent by a capitalist enemy.
