Black History Month

Black Cuba ll - Short films by von Ricardo Bacallao & Yoel Diaz Vázquez


 

The death of Fidel Castro, and the decision of Obama to end the "wet foot, dry foot policy" put the Cuban Community (on the island and abroad) in the middle of one perfect storm. Now more than ever, it is necessary to explore where the Black Cuban Community is heading.

Moderation: Bernd Pickert, taz journalist
Yoel Diaz Vázquez, video artist
Ricardo Bacallao, filmmaker
Diogenes Nodarse, musician

Films:

Ruido (Noise), 2005-2010
17 minutes, Dir: Yoel Diaz, English subtitles
Yoel Diaz Vazquez invited 39 young Cuban rappers to speak their mind about Cuban society today through sung interventions filmed in their own domestic settings. This is a representation of a young generation whose voices, through their critical urban poetry, express the discontent, frustration, helplessness and lack of perspective in Cuba. His aim is to draw attention to the social impact of their significance as groups, and to their demands.

About the Black people in Cuba from the point of view of hip hop.

Roberto Poveda
