Sound + Vision Trailer: Viva Cuba Libre
A timely film, given recent uprisings and protests all over the world. Although, do they ever really end? All is not right with the world, so there's always going to be something to revolt against.

Music as political protest lives on in Cuba in the form of rap duo Los Aldeanos

Aldo and El B challenge the government’s social and economic policies, but in doing so they put themselves in real danger, as well as the fans who come to see them, and also the director of the film, Jesse Acevedo, and his crew. 

Filming the Cuban *underground* scene, Acevedo follows Los Aldeanos with an anonymous crew to hastily-promoted performances on the outskirts, shooting with hidden cameras. The group has been accused of “anti-socialist sentiments.” 

It's a revolution against the revolutionaries, and the music is, well, good.

The 74-minute film, Viva Cuba Libre: Rap is War!,  will next screen at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's SOUND + VISION (July 26 to August 1) screening series - a music documentary series exploring a range of musical artists, genres and styles.

It screens Sunday, July 27, at 9pm

All screenings will be held at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, 144 West 65th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
