Return to Cuba

Documentary | 79 minutes | 2016 |

After living in Italy for 18 years, Barbara Ramos returns to live in Cuba. In the town of Santa Clara, through her family and friends and their personal projects, she discovers what has changed inside her home country, but also what hasn’t and likely will never change. Shot over a period of three years – the time it took Barbara to build her dream house – RETURN TO CUBA chronicles her life after the Fidel Castro era, in the wake of liberal reforms and the reconciliation with the United States of America. A light-hearted yet energetic movie demonstrating that finding happiness is possible again in today’s Cuba!
