Between 2010 and 2012, the legendary Cuban folk singer Silvio Rodríguez embarked on a tour of 60 of the poorest barrios in the country. He was one of the founders of the Nueva Canción movement of politically inspired folk music that spread across South America during the 1960s. Prior to the tour, artists with Rodríguez’s stature had been spending more time playing concerts abroad, and Cubans had complained that they hardly got to see local artists.

A discussion will take place following the screening.
