Storyline

East of Havana is a blunt, unflinching close-up on the lives of three young rappers compelled to address their generation's future from the confines of a Cuban ghetto. Soandry, Magyori, and Mikki are the defacto leaders of Cuba's rebellious underground hip hop movement. Possessing the undeniable talent and charisma of pop icons, these fearless performers push self-expression to its sharpest, riskiest, and most triumphant point. Written by Anonymous

El Cartel and The Special Period
9 January 2007 | by (Berkshire, UK) – See all my reviews

The Cuban hip-hop movement came out of 'The Special Period' when Cuba's communist block collapsed and the economy was hanging by a thread. Since then rapper groups, such as "El Cartel" have become cult figures within their local community. In the only way they know how, these men and women voice their generation's anger towards the country's economic blockade through American-influenced music to carry their message. Beneath these acrimonious and emboldened lyrics lies hope, love, and compassion for their fellow Cubans dreaming of a more prosperous life. This delicately crafted documentary speaks volumes as it portrays the impoverished lives of three young and gifted rap artists, with grace and glorious sensitivity.
