"Highly recommended... An endearing and intimate reverie... distinguished by its refusal to conclude or preach... it helps the audience contemplate mixed and multiple Cuban realities."—Holly Ackerman, Educational Media Reviews Online

This screening is open to the public on a first come first serve basis. Visit the CUNY website for more information.
