In her autobiographical documentary, the filmmaker returns from the United States to Cuba to reflect on her idyllic childhood shared with her classmates from the mid-1970s to the 1980s—the most prosperous economic period in the country’s history. Her generation was filled with hope that went unfulfilled when Cuba’s financial support from socialist countries abroad dried up as the Soviet Union spun apart in the early 1990s. 2006, France/Cuba, in Spanish with English subtitles, 82 minutes.

Followed by a post-screening discussion led by August H. Nimtz, Jr.; Professor of Political Science, University of Minnesota.
