Program Description:

At the end of the 1980s and during the 1990s, the Cuban government used to confine HIV patients to sanatoriums under military rule, allowing them a weekly pass to visit their families under the supervision of personal wardens called “companions”. The movie dives into some of the most obscured moments of Cuban history: the AIDS epidemic, the fighting in Africa and the pressure the government exerted over Cuban athletes. Screening will be presented and followed by Q&A session led by Dr. Laura Finley, associate professor of Sociology and Criminology at Barry University. Screening in Spanish with English subtitles. Discussion in English.
