providing for his family and becoming a musician. Upon his return, he faces a familiar but

distant wife and teenage daughters who may as well be strangers. This striking film won the

Critics Week award for Best Film at 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

CUBAMERICAN is the stirring story of how the Cuban Revolution shattered the Cuban family.

Spanning the past 60 years of Cuban history, the film evokes this tragedy and its universal

themes of loss, freedom, assimilation, struggle and triumph through the stories of Cuban exiles

that have achieved acclaim in diverse fields in the U.S.A. and beyond, rendering a mosaic of a

bittersweet exile experience. A pro-immigrant story that grapples with the agony of

displacement, contributes rumination on the future of Cuba, and highlights the absolute need
