Cuba Comes to Cincinnati

The film CUBA: Journey to the Heart of the Caribbean opened on June 7 at the Robert D. Lindner Family Omnimax Theater in the Cincinnati Museum Center. It shows and tells the story of this authentic land and place enriched with Rumba, classic cars and cigars. From the vibrant streets of Havana to its reefs and enthralling ocean surfaces, the film also addresses a cultural shift and change Cuba is going through currently while still maintaining its authenticity.

One of the highlights of the film is seeing the story of a young ballerina who is preparing to audition for the world-renowned Cuban National Ballet. I have always loved dance so this portion of the movie was especially touching watching her tireless preparation.

After traveling to Cuba three times over the past eight years I have seen firsthand the changes that are taking place on the island. Havana is one of the favorite destinations that I have traveled to. Situated just 90 miles off the coast of the continental United States, it seems like a world away once you arrive. The people are amazing ad some of the most friendly in the world and it is unlike any other Caribbean country.

I highly encourage a trip to Cuba to everyone and if you can’t make it in person make sure to catch the film when it comes to a city near you.
