Carlos Montaner: I think this event is a unique opportunity to watch never-before-seen footage shot underground about the reality of young people on the island. Moreover, it is also a chance to see firsthand testimony from youth in Cuba who are actively trying to bring about change.
The film includes some of the most prominent young Cubans including acclaimed bloggers like Yoani Sanchez and Claudia Cadelo, and underground artists like Los Aldeanos and Gorki Aguila. I think the Cuban community in Miami will be surprised to see such uncanny testimony. Like no other film produced about Cuban youth,The Grandchildren of the Cuban Revolution offers a glimpse into the reality of young people in Cuba and helps bridge the divide between youth on and off the island.
