Now on May 2 (new date), Livestream Jason Prah will speak with director Alexandro Pacheco who traveled to Havana, Cuba, on an Educational Visa in 2017 to collect extensive data for a linguistics paper he was researching. While in Cuba, he spoke with over a dozen natural-born Cubans who spoke proudly of their nation and a government that, from our perspective, has kept them sequestered.

ABOUT THE FILM: An examination of theology and ideologies between two Hispanic immigrant women, one Cuban and one Mexican; and a philosophical journey between two cousins reeling from the loss of a family member. Both parts converge with a poignant, family-affirming climax. Adapted from an essay and a short story written by a son and his mother, respectively.
