Cuban Visions 6: The Personal Is Political

About This Show

La Música de las Esferas (Music of the Spheres) / Directed by Marcel Beltran / 82 min. / 2018 / Documentary Feature / Spanish with English subtitles.

Beltrán’s father Mauricio and mother Regina met in the 1980s. Equally committed to socialist ideals, they started a life together, even though Regina’s father rejected Mauricio on account of his race. Beltrán draws out what was sacrificed as his parents forged into the austerity of the 1990s, simultaneously confronting the fraught politics of family and nation both.

Post-screening presentation: Americas Media Initiative (AMI) Cuban artist and filmmaker Marcel Beltrán will host an intimate conversation following his nonfiction feature screening, which pays homage to his parents’ enduring love while pondering his country’s turbulent history.
