Bright Lights:Soy Cubana

Directed by Ivaylo Getov and Jeremy Ungar

Free Event

Co-presented with the Boston Latino International Film Festival, Roxbury International Film Festival, and the Emerson College Alumni Association

In 2017, the all-female Cuban quartet, Vocal Vidas, were invited to perform their first show in America, just as US-Cuba relations were closing. What began as a concert became a journey across physical and ideological borders: an affirmation of the connective power of music, even in the most uncertain times.
