La Singular Historia de Juan sin Nada (The Unique Story of Unlucky Juan) / Directed by Ricardo Figueredo Oliva / 52 min. / 2016 / Documentary Feature / Spanish with English subtitles

The Unique Story of Unlucky Juan is a comprehensive, accessible examination of the particularities of the Cuban economy. Using a fictional worker named Juan as an example, the film shows how the economy affects the daily lives of ordinary citizens – and how badly it squeezes those who don’t have access to hard currency.

POST-SCREENING PRESENTATION: Director Ricardo Figueredo Oliva and Cuban journalist and blogger (La Joven Cuba), Harold Cárdenas. The discussion will focus on the current state of the Cuban economy and Cuba’s new constitutional reforms.
