A discussion with Associate Director Jennifer Ruth Hosek will follow the screening of:

Rodando en La Habana: bicycle stories (30 min, Spanish with English subs) 

This independent documentary made by a largely Cuban film team tells the story of bicycling and community in Havana today. 

It’s been 20 years after the hardest time of the Special Period, when over 1 million Chinese bicycles were imported to aid survival on an island suddenly without Soviet petroleum….

Rodando opened to a sold-out audience and intensive media interest at the 37th Havana Film Festival, Dec 2015. This is the Bay Area premier.
