Join me at 1pm August 25 at the Ritzy Cinema in Brixton, London, for a rare chance to see Fernando Perez's lavish film about the life of famed Cuban revolutionary José Martí (1853-1895).
Perez focuses on Marti's early years of as he experiences the many injustices perpetrated under Spanish colonial rule.
He re-invents the childhood and adolescence of Cuba's 19th-century national hero, covering the years he lived in Cuba before being sent into exile for political sedition at the age of 17.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with myself and my good Cuban friend Vladimir Smith Mesa PhD.
