The film shows Cuba over a course of 45 years through the lens of Jon Alpert.
Alpert started visiting Cuba in the 70’s. After founding the Downtown Community Television Center, he became increasingly interested in Cuba’s policies. He said: “We heard that Fidel Castro was implementing the social programs that we were fighting for here in New York”. The film was edited from over 1,000 hours of footage, Alpert filmed since the first time he visited Cuba.
