Rodando En La Habana - bicycle stories is a street-level story of contemporary Havana.
It’s been 20 years since the Special Period, when Cuba found itself suddenly without Soviet petroleum. Importing over 1 million Chinese bicycles helped save the island – what does bicycling mean to Cubans today? This indie work by a largely Habanero team premiered to a full house in the Festival of New Latin American Cinema. Awards include a Best Short Doc in the Mexico International Film Festival. Rodando has screened widely at festivals and other venues, including on Latin American TeleSur TV. Co-filmmaker Jennifer Ruth Hosek will attend to discuss bicycle stories and the situation of Cuba today.
Bonus screening of Forever Bicycle (15 min, 1997, Luis Deulofeu, Cuba), Cuban Spanish – no subs – international premiere.
Doors @ 6:30pm. Film screening @ 7:00pm.
