This award-winning documentary follows street-smart Ivy League students who band together on an adventure to the enigmatic Caribbean island of Cuba, where the population is 60% black. Their journey reveals enthralling scenes of Cuban life, including hip-hop performances, block parties, and candid encounters with Afro-Cuban youth. As they film, the young travelers discover connections between Cuban and American perspectives on human rights, race, and revolution. A conversation with filmmaker Dr. Robin J. Hayes will follow the screening.
