Bye bye Havana

Cuba stands pummeled by an unworkable socialism and a voracious consumer appetite. "Patriotism or death" are simply no longer enough. Cubans want other choices, other points of view. This fast-paced stream of consciousness documentary presents a vibrant and intriguing portrayal of Cuban life with a unique flavor of irony. It juxtaposes modern commercialism -- adverts promising a better life through coffee, cars and cigarettes -- with the difficulties that the Cubans currently face. Features clips from anti-Communist American films of the 1950s interspersed with present day shots of Havana. Directed, written and produced by J. Michael Seyfert. c 2005. 58 min.
