Overview

American filmmakers Laurie Ann Schag and Casey Stoll journeyed to Cuba to investigate the nuts and bolts of day-to-day life for artists and musicians in Cuba, and Great Day in Havana is the result, offering a look at the literal state of the arts in Cuba's capital city. Sculptor Pedro "Pulido" Gonzalez, performance artist Tania Bruguera, singer and songwriter Carlos Varela, and jazz musicians Ele Valdes and Carlos Alfonso all discuss their work, the political climate in Cuba, their feelings about Fidel Castro, and their views on America's economic embargo against their nation. Elio Ruiz, a filmmaker born in Cuba who now lives elsewhere, also lends his perspectives on Cuba's large exile community. Yareli Arizmendi narrates.
