Images of Cuba -- A Country Defined by a Revolution by William Barnett Oct 10th

Images of Cuba -- A Country Defined by a Revolution

will be presented by William Barnett on Monday Oct 10th

Images of Cuba: A Country Defined by a Revolution explores an island nation hidden from most Americans for over 50 years. Three primary destinations were visited in search of photographs: Havana on the north side of the island, Trinidad on the south side, and the area west of Havana. Approximately 300 still images interspersed with video clips accompanied by live narration and suitable music are used to tell the story of a visit to modern Cuba.






Program Description
Are you curious about Cuba, an island nation hidden from most Americans for over 50 years? Does the prospect of a city filled with 1950-era American cars fascinate you? Are you wondering why travel to Cuba is so attractive in spite of restrictions imposed by the US government? Are you interested in seeing the latest techniques of show production that incorporate video clips in addition to still images and appropriate music. Then you must see Images of Cuba: A Country Defined by a Revolution. In Cuba our photography took us to three primary destinations: Havana on the north side of the island, Trinidad on the south side of the island, and the area west of Havana. In Havana photographic highlights include the Museum of the Revolution, the Streets of Old Havana, 1950-era U.S. automobiles, visits to Café Taberna and Cabaret Topicana, a boxing training session, and the Malecón, the 7-Killometer long drive along Havana Bay which forms the northern edge of the city where people gather day and night; this is also an excellent venue for sunsets. Trinidad is a much smaller city, but one with its own charms including a open-air venue where local musical groups perform. West of Havana is a tobacco growing region; our visit there included the small town of Viñales. The program contains approximately 300 still images captured over a 10-day visit interspersed with video clips to tell the story of a visit to this hidden country. Live narration and suitable background music complete the presentation.
