The Man of Two Havanas
(A documentary film by Vivien Lesnik Weisman/2007/97mins.)
"OK. Here’s the situation. I was born in Havana. That makes me Cuban. But, I was raised in little Havana, which makes me Cuban-American. However, since I don’t see Castro as the root of all evil in the universe, nor would I strangle him with my bare hands if given the opportunity, I am a little out of step with my tribe. And I really don’t care. But my father does care. He cares a great deal…" -Vivien Lesnik Weisman, Director
With a childhood filled with bombings and assassination attempts on her father, the filmmaker explores her relationship with him and the Cuba he left behind. Through the prism of a daughter we explore the past, the present, and the nature of social responsibility and personal sacrifice.
“A deeply personal and finely-felt documentary”—Nathan Southern New York Times
Director Vivien Lesnik Weisman will be in attendance for Q&A on the Monday and Tuesday screenings.
