Chicago’s First Cuban Film Festival: Roots of My Heart

April 15, 2012 @ 3:00 pm - 12:00 am


This film is part of Chicago’s First Cuban Film Festival

Directed by: Gloria Relonda

The film focuses on an immensely significant series of events in Cuba. It’s the untold story of the rise of the Party of People of Color –first Black political party formed in the Americas after Haiti– and its subsequent extermination by the then-U.S.-controlled Cuban government. And beyond that, the film raises the intertwining of the Black liberation and the Cuban national liberation revolutionary movements, pin-pointing how both Black rights and Black leadership are at the heart of any thoughtful consideration of the Cuba. This is a movie worth seeing and discussing.

Free and open to the Public
