About the film:
Raza is a documentary film on racism in Cuba by Cuban born Eric Corvalán, made with support from the Cuban non-governmental Martin Luther King Memorial Centre (CMMLK), the Cuban Higher Institute of Art (ISA) and Delfín, an independent producer. The documentary explores the issue of racism in Cuba through conversations with scholars, musicians, government officials and the general population. It’s objective is to serve as an open reflection on the subject and a sociohistorical and cultural recognition of the role of black Cubans in the formation and consolidation of Cuban identity.
