The Poet of Havana - Documentary
13 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I wish I could translate the songs to Spanish. It would not sound the same though. This is an excellent documentary. I am trying to buy the DVD but can not find it anywhere. If someone knows how/where I can buy it,please let me know. Carlos' songs are incredible. I was born in Cuba and left the country when I was 17 years old. Listening to Carlos' songs bring me back to Cuba, my youth and how the current regime have robed its citizens of all of their dreams. The people there are hungry for freedom. They want to be able to demonstrate how they feel by singing, writing songs, etc. without the scrutiny of that awful regime. I cried watching this documentary. So much wasted talent.
