For over 50 years Cuba, the largest island in the Caribbean and located only 90 miles from Florida, has been off-limits to Americans. There are strict limitations as to where Americans can visit and it is not a typical "tourist" experience but an exciting place to visit. .. The people are warm and friendly, the countryside is diverse and the beaches and ocean pristine.

Of course there is the music, the restored 1950’s automobiles, rum, cigars and all that we associate with this island which in so many ways is as it was 50 years ago.Through photos, video and discussion, the Gorells will share what they found to be the Cuba of the 21st Century, a beautiful, conflicted island of people who love their country but hope for a better future.
