“The amazing diversity of contemporary Cuban music is gorgeously explored in Ron Chapman’s third documentary feature. . . . With this ambitious new film, Chapman captures the full gamut of what’s happening now in Cuba, both the most exciting artists and the distinct musical scenes they move in, from classic son and salsa, to trova, nueva trova, reggaton, rock, jazz, metal, rap, electronic, classical, choral, pop, changu, danzón, rumba, yoruba, bolero, conga, timba, mambo and—if you can believe it—more.” (Miami Film Festival)

Film festival continues each Thursday through March 28

Two Cuban film classics at the Trylon Theater: Soy Cuba and Memories of Underdevelopment


March 3 – 12

Born in poverty, Corrieri became one of Cuba’s leading actors and theater directors as well as the Cuban Communist Party’s head of cultural development. The Trylon presents two of that country’s greatest films, both of which star Corrieri and blend the personal and the political. Promotional support for these screenings is provided by the Minnesota Cuba Committee.
