FIDELANDIA: BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF CUBA'S REVOLUTION
Director: Isaias Castañeda
Cuba-USA, 2016
77 min
Spanish with English subtitles

World Premier

When Cubas former dictator Fulgencio Batista was overthrown from power by Fidel Castro and his revolutionaries in the late 1950s, the people of Cuba were promised a better Cuba.  They were promised the opportunity to rise to a higher standard of living, but according to many struggling to survive within the population, Fidel Castro failed to deliver his promise, delivering instead a growing stagnation of an aging economy. Fidelandia takes a look at the countrys current culture after fifty-years under Castro by focusing on how the youth deal with the influence of Western culture  by way of tourism, prostitution, the use of illegal Internet and television.

Cuando el ex dictador de Cuba, Fulgencio Batista, fue derrocado del poder por Fidel Castro y sus revolucionarios en la década de 1950, el pueblo de Cuba se les prometió una Cuba mejor. Se les prometió la oportunidad de elevarse a una calidad de vida más alta, pero la opinión de muchos que luchan por sobrevivir dentro de la población , Fidel Castro no a cumplido su promesa , entregando su lugar un estancamiento economíco. Fidelandia echa un vistazo a la cultura actual del país después de cincuenta años bajo Castro , centrándose en la forma en que los jóvenes se relacionan con la influencia de la cultura occidental a través del turismo , la prostitución , y el uso de Internet y television ilegal.
