Film: an academic’s analysis

1 min read

An interview with Tomás Fernández Robaina, one of Cuba’s most prominent gay, black history scholars, a researcher at Havana’s National Library, and self-confessed francotirador (sniper) of Cuban society

‘I am aged 75 and surprised by my country. I thought I would be living another way.’

 Informed consent was gained for all of the video footage of the ceremonies. We are truly grateful for the, at times, unprecedented access we were given to sacred spaces by the people who appear in this film.

Film: Bex Wade

Interview: Emma Eastwood
