Discover the Real Cuba: the island time forgot, where a rich home-grown culture thrives free of the Commercialized World of American Mass Media! In over 50 years since the revolution, Cuba's isolation has allowed the culture to evolve on it's own. In 2010, filmmaker Warren Haack went to Cuba on a lark to experience the music and ended up falling in love with the culture. He returned four more times to experience it and film this in-depth look at the music, dance, religion and everyday lives of the people; in the streets, homes and clubs where life throbs to a distinct, captivating rhythm.
This film is being presented as part of Saint Louis University's Atlas Program in partnership with the Sixth Annual Africa World Documentary Film Festival, sponsored by the E. Desmond Lee Endowed Professorship in African/African American Studies of the International Studies and Programs at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
