With Mariela Castro, Omara Portuondo, Jorge Perugorria, Ignacio Ramonet, Frei Betto, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Víctor Hugo Morales

Dedicated to the “last 20 years of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and Che Guevara,” Rebels and So We Remain provides a rarely seen perspective of the country; one from the point of view of those with an unconditional support to the revolution.

Fierily current, the documentary follows journalist Carlos Javier Rodríguez as he investigates Cuba’s recent history through the eyes of workers, politicians, and renowned cultural icons such as Raul Castro’s daughter Mariela Castro, Buena Vista Social Club diva Omara Portuondo, and actor/director Jorge Perugorria, among many others.

Their thoughts and opinion explore the last twenty years of the revolution, taxes, socialism, Fidel, the relationship with USA, President Obama’s visit to the island, and the lift of the embargo.

About the Director
Carlos Javier Rodríguez is a Cuban journalist living in Argentina for the past 20 years. He works as a journalist since then and funded the news agency Cuba Es Otra Historia. He also has a radio show where he discusses different issues about the island.
Press

“Journalist Carlos Rodríguez's documentary reflects with interesting testimonies and situations how the island subsisted despite the blocking, changes coming after the restoration of the relationship with the US, and the continuity of socialism.” – Maximiliano Acosta, DIARIO POPULAR
