Documentary filmmakers Jauretsi Saizarbitoria and Emilia Menocal provide a revealing glimpse of Cuba’s hidden hip-hop culture and everyday life on the island, with profiles of three members of El Cartel, an underground rap collective. Soandry raps about social justice and talks about the separation from his brother who left for America a decade earlier; charming and charismatic Mikki raises pigeons and sings of love; and Magyori, the tough and poetic daughter of a prostitute, reflects about daily survival. “The real deal” – The New York Times.
