This past October we lost a formidable voice in Cuban and documentary cinema- Diana Montero (1986-2020). Passing away at the age of 34, she left behind an award-winning filmography that focuses on daily life in the Cuban countryside, a vibrant window into the stories of the people who live there.

A Flamboyantly Musical Cuban Tour: AMOR CRÓNICO
TUESDAY, DEC. 29, STREAMING AVAILABLE FROM 5PM TO 11PM
Before 2020 ends let’s hop on the bus with the flamboyant Cuban-born / New York-based singer CuCu Diamantes on a musical road-trip through Cuba.
This musical, romantic, feature-length docu-comedy, directed by legendary Cuban actor Jorge Perugorría, follows Grammy nominated singer CuCu Diamantes as she embarks on a whirlwind tour of her home country. Interweaving glamorous live performances with a fictional romance, the film is the perfect tune-filled road movie to enjoy from home. Backed by a high-energy Latin soundtrack, CuCu’s journey is a visual love poem to the sites, sounds, and people of Cuba.
