The Cuban revolution has turned fifty. Fifty years of history, myths and challenges in a country that has influenced the politics and culture of the whole world, becoming the symbol of the revolt against capitalism for many people. A country with a host of contradictions, but one whose powerful political and cultural identity has long held great fascination. L’oro di Cuba takes an in-depth look at the most exciting and the most dramatic episodes in the history of the Caribbean island. It also analyses the present, however using testimony from young people talking about their hopes, opinions, expectations and dreams, in an attempt to imagine the future ahead for this small country with a great history. L’oro di Cuba is a look into the soul of Cuba by auteur Giuliano Montaldo.
