Unfortunately the Eric had to cancel plans for this trip at the last
minute. So the event will not happen.
We will try and get a copy of his movie and show it at a later date.
Eric M. Corvalán Pelle, an award-winning Cuban filmmaker will be showing
his film, Race/Raza and commenting on it.
*Race (Raza): A Cuban Documentary in Colors (2009).* Alternating
opinions expressed by everyday citizens with interviews of prominent
Cuban intellectuals and artists, the 35-minute film explores what Cubans
think and believe about race, including about racial discrimination in
Cuba and the acknowledged debt owed to Cubans of African descent. Set
against the successes of the Revolution, the film courageously addresses
the difficult debate over how a revolutionary society can persevere in
tackling the unfinished work of bringing social justice to each and
every one of its members. Corvalan has continued to work on the issues
of race/racism in Cuba as a member of the National Union of Writers and
Artists of Cuba.
