Official Trailer for Vibrant 'Cuba' IMAX Doc Showcasing the Country
"Come on a giant screen journey to the heart of the Caribbean…" Giant Screen Films has unveiled a trailer for a documentary titled simply Cuba, a film about the island country in the Caribbean. This seems to be a glorified travel documentary, with a focus on the cultural aspects and places that make it such a fascinating place. Filmed exclusively for the giant screen format, Cuba tells the story of "a land preserved in time, yet poised on the cusp of dramatic change." Transporting audiences "across breathtaking landscapes, under the ocean surface to iridescent reefs, and into streets throbbing with music and dance in the heart of Havana." And it's showing in IMAX and 3D for those who really want to get fully immersed in the experience of what it's like to be there. This a visually stunning and captivating way to get people to go visit this island nation.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Peter H. Chang's documentary Cuba, direct from YouTube:
Cuba tells the powerful story of a land preserved in time, yet poised on the cusp of dramatic change. The nation’s vibrant culture, meticulously maintained colonial architecture, and pristine ecosystems provide a vivid window into the island's history and spirit. CUBA will transport audiences across breathtaking landscapes, under the ocean surface to iridescent reefs, and into streets throbbing with music and dance in the heart of Havana. Through the eyes of Cuban artists, historians, and scientists, the film provides an intimate look this vivacious island nation. Cuba is directed by filmmaker Peter H. Chang, director of the doc Children of Enlightenment previously, as well as a producer and cameraman. Produced by Golden Gate 3D, in association with BBC Earth, Giant Screen Films and the Giant Dome Theater Consortium. Cuba will be released in IMAX in both 2D and 3D starting in January 2019 early next year. Who's interested in this?

It sure does look nice, but as we all know, there's so much more to any country in the world than all the beauties that can be shown...

Wow... If This is not Political I dont Know What is, Gloryfiying the "Joys" of Socialism? of a Ruthless Dictatorship? Or is it that After 60 Years It Suddenly Isnt, Because it lets Americans who go there with their Mouthes Shut parade around The Touristic Areas while Hiding The Misery of Abandoned houses, Stores, Hotels, Etc? While Applying all Their "Awesome" Formulas to Countries like Venezuela? Im Sorry But I am appalled by this thing, Its Like Going To North Korea or China and Showing All the "Nice" Things while Hiding everything Else, It Sickens me

Have you been there? Do you know people who live there? I have and I do - and your views are 25 years or more out of date. The US embargo is probably the worst thing affecting the Cuba people and the biggest impediment to Cuba becoming more capitalist.

They keep those classic cars pristine because it's the only cars that have been there since the 50's! Thanks Castro! But yeah, this might as well be aired on the Travel Channel for a "VISIT CUBA!" campaign.

Actually there are many more Ladas than American classic cars. BTW, most of the American cars are not "pristine" in the sense of original. They have had to be modified over the 60-odd years since their original purchase to keep them running. They tend to be concentrated in Havana where many are used as taxis. We just returned from Cuba; people were friendly, candid, many creative (art, music, keeping cars running). It is a poor country and our embargo makes that worse. Sure Castro made big mistakes, probably (my view) heavily influenced by Che Guevara. My impression is that with time, a new president (Raoul is gone), a new constitution, and people now beginning to create small private businesses, things will get better. You want them to become capitalist? Support getting rid of the embargo and watch capitalism grow.
