Documentaire / 2017 / duration: 0:37 / Verenigde Staten / director: María Isabel Alfonso / / Spoken languages: Spaans / Subtitles: English

Since the mid-1990s, Cuba has seen a rise in independent media, and a resurgence of movements fighting against racism, for economic justice and LGBTQI rights, and for greater democracy and citizen participation. In RETHINKING CUBAN CIVIL SOCIETY, Cuban academics, journalists, bloggers, writers, and musicians grapple with what it means to encourage healthy public participation and dissent in the context of Cuba: a country under embargo in which foreign-funded dissidents seek to overthrow the government, and at the same time a country in which the Communist Party has placed itself above the state. Thoughtful and engaging, the film gives an inside look into Cuban dynamics that are often neglected by mainstream media. After the screening, a Q&A will be held with the director.
