Overview

(83 mins) Street-smart Ivy League students who are outcasts at their elite universities band together and adventure to Cuba to see if revolution is truly possible. Intent on sharing their experiences, the students film their journey in the streets of Havana and Santiago. While documenting their poignant encounters with Afro-Cuban youth and neighborhood block parties, the travelers confront realities behind myths of color-blindness and social mobility. This edgy and artful diary of their travels uncovers renewed hope for equality and human rights. Featuring Fidel Castro, Fred Hampton, Che Guevara, Malcolm X, and Assata Shakur in rarely-seen footage. In observance of Caribbean Heritage Month.
