Somos Cuba

Somos Cuba is an observational documentary that follows three characters during the regime change in Cuba. Vladimir is a chef who has turned his living room into a restaurant while raising two teenage daughters as a single father. Ray is a construction worker by day and a bodyguard by night who still believes he lives in the revolution. Niko is an artist painting dilapidated buildings for sale to foreign tourists and compiling a collection of photographs of Havana’s “ladies of the night.” I will continue documenting their lives in January 2018 and 2021.
