Forbidden Cuba

December 201880 minutes

The first American feature film made in Cuba since the revolution of 1959, Forbidden Cuba is a dramatic comedy that follows Gil Bigelow, an American businessman sent on a covert mission to Cuba to find an executive gone rogue. On arrival, Gil quickly gets swallowed in the unknowns of Havana. Traveling deeper into the island, he’s stripped of his digital gadgets, his routines and bearings, and finds his eyes opened to the beauty and vibrant culture of Cuba - challenging his corporate directives, his identity and everything he's known. Without permits, permission or a Plan B, Forbidden Cuba was filmed guerrilla-style on location by a five-person American and French team over three intense weeks. The film reveals a nation of incredible magnetism, striking contradictions and new possibilities. Colliding narrative storytelling with documentary filmmaking, Forbidden Cuba captures a bold and humorous story that's equal parts 'Local Hero' and “Heart of Darkness.
