Black and Cuba

directed by Robin Hayes

‘Black and Cuba’ follows street-smart students, who are outcasts at an elite Ivy League university, as they band together and adventure to Cuba to see if revolution is truly possible. While filming their poignant encounters with AfroCuban youth, breathtaking sites and moving hip-hop performances, the travelers confront realities behind myths of color-blindness and social mobility. This edgy and artful documentary of their journey uncovers renewed hope for equality and human rights. ‘Black and Cuba’ is the feature film directorial debut of international human rights advocate and scholar Robin J. Hayes, PhD.
