Reinventing Cuba (Preview)
As the United States and Cuba move toward normal relations for the first time in more than 54 years, a remarkable documentary film profiles a unique collection of people who are pushing the boundaries and "Reinventing Cuba." The film goes beyond the stereotypes --- beyond cigars and salsa, beyond mojitos and Malecón, beyond antique American cars and decaying architecture -- to reveal an extraordinary nation eager to embrace change.
Correspondent Gerry Hadden, a long time Cuba watcher, takes viewers on a personal journey. He meets little league sluggers defying the odds and dreaming of the majors; doctors and medical researchers saving lives; hustlers finding ways around limited internet connections; artists and designers at the height of creativity; and black marketeers selling a vital entertainment and information device called "the package."
Hadden speaks with vibrant, hopeful, and resourceful characters facing enormous challenges in today's Cuba. He reveals an often overlooked, burgeoning, middle class that is at the forefront of what will likely be Cuba's future as it moves into a new era.
