Program Description
Program offers a contemporary profile of Cuba utilizing Say Brother interview footage shot during the production's 1977 visit to Cuba and two studio discussions (one which is "pro-Cuba" as it is, the other "anti-Castro"). Host Eduardo Diaz speaks with Mauricio Gaston (a designer in Cambridge and member of the Antonio Maceo Brigade) and Dr. Emilio Carrillo (who works at Cambridge City Hospital) about their positive experiences in Cuba (including their opinions on Cuban advancements in housing, healthcare, the political environment, and cultural expression) in discussion "one," and Ana Galbis (who recently moved to the United States from Cuba after living there for 17 years), Manuel Marquez-Sterling (Chairman of the History Department at the University of New Hampshire at Plymouth), and Modesto Maidique (a professor at the Harvard Business School, Harvard University) in discussion "two" (which looks at the changes in Cuba after the 1959 revolution, the sublimation of racism [rather than the eradication] and the lack of freedoms that prompted members participating in the discussion to leave). Segments filmed in Cuba feature Eduardo Diaz talking to Cubans living in Havana about their lives, as well as footage of Cuban dance and instrumental performances.
