Sons of Cuba will be featured at the 2011 Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, occurring September 26th through October 4th. It is available on DVD for purchase through their website.

The documentary is directed by Andrew Lang, and the plot revolves around young boys whose "duties extend far beyond the ring: They are groomed not only as world-class fighters, but also to be international symbols for their country, dubbed by Castro: "the standard bearers of the Revolution". SONS OF CUBA follows the stories of three young hopefuls through 8 dramatic months of training and schooling as they prepare for the biggest event of their lives: Cuba's National Boxing Championship for Under-12's. During the season, crisis strikes: Fidel Castro, the boys leader and inspiration, is taken ill, and all of Cuba's Olympic boxing champions defect to the USA, leaving the boys contemplating a future which is altogether different from the one they have been taught to believe in."

Check it out.
