This is Your Cuba

ESTA ES TU CUBA is a short film inspired by the real-life stories of the children involved in Operation Pedro Pan, the mass exodus of over 14,000 unaccompanied minors from Cuba to America. ESTA ES TU CUBA takes place in 1960’s Cuba, Castro has just come into power, and the country is beginning to change. Communism is taking hold and divides the community; You’re either pro-revolution or a dissident. We see this world through the eyes of our main character, ANTON (10). He dances, laughs, and plays with his friends. Anton’s life begins to spiral out of control as he realizes his beloved Cuba is changing.
