Excitement over Cuba is at an all-time high and the forbidden paradise is on everyone's mind. Yet, as beautiful and alluring as Cuba is, it remains complicated, especially for Cuban-Americans who have fled (and continue to flee) the island.

The new award-winning documentary film, CRAVING CUBA, follows first-time filmmaker, Zuzy Martin Lynch, on a quest of self-discovery as she interviews artists, musicians, journalists, politicians, Abuelitos (grandparents), and others, on a quest to better understand herself, her community and Cuba today.

Appearances by prominent Cuban figures include actor Carlos Ponce, opera singer Eglise Gutierrez, award-winning novelist Cristina Garcia, and more.

The bilingual film has been accepted to 8 film festivals and has screened to sold-out audiences throughout the country. The film also won an Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature Film at its World Premiere.
