Santiago is Santiago


The Coastside Film Society screens a documentary about the rich homegrown Afro-Cuban folk culture that has thrived in the eastern region of Cuba. It's been more than 50 years since the Cuban revolution; Cuba's isolation from the U.S. has allowed its culture to evolve on its own. In 2011, filmmaker Warren Haack went to Cuba on a lark to experience the music. He ended up falling in love with the culture. He returned to film this in-depth look at the music, dance, religion and everyday lives of the people -- in the streets, at home and in the clubs where life throbs to a distinct, captivating rhythm.
