Soy Cubana

Cuba/USA, Feature Documentary, 2021, 79 min

Winner of an Audience Award at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival

When the Vocal Vidas, an all-female Cuban quartet, are invited to play their first show in the U.S., a simple concert becomes a journey across physical and ideological borders—affirming the connective power of music, even in the most uncertain times. Their infectious spirit, precise vocal harmonies and melting pot of references embody the sounds of Santiago de Cuba, the cradle of Afro-Cuban music. Soy Cubana is a beautiful film about crossing borders, the capacity for human connection, pursuing artistic integrity while caught between cultural and political crosscurrents, and the meaning of home. Subtitled.

Directed by Ivaylo Getov, Jeremy Ungar
