Directed by Julien Temple • 2017 • United Kingdom
Interweaving rare archival footage, colorful contemporary interviews, and a dynamic soundtrack of son cubano, salsa, jazz, rumba, mambo, and hip-hop, director Julien Temple creates a vivid homage to the rich cultural history of Cuba. Spanning the nineteenth century to the present day, HABANEROS chronicles the watershed moments—from the Spanish-American War to the revolution of Fidel Castro to the country’s recent reemergence on the global stage—that have shaped one of the most unique and vibrant societies in the world.
