Cuban National Literacy Campaign Documentary Screening: Silvio y el Poder de la Palabra

View Full Event Description

Stone Center Masters student, Lilian Lombera has been working on this project and it is ready to launch THIS SUNDAY. Check out the launch of the new documentary & a tribute to Silvio Rodriguez y el Poder de La Palabra! Exclusive (free!) livestream presented by HotHouse. This 25-minute documentary film thoughtfully weaves archival footage of the Cuban Literacy Campaign of 1961 and a rare, exclusive interview with Cuba‘€™s iconic singer/songwriter and international recording artist, Silvio Rodriguez, as he recounts his first calling. At the age of 14, Silvio volunteered to join the brigade of over one hundred thousand teenagers that went into the Cuban mountains and countryside to teach rural campesinos how to read and write. In this exclusive interview, Silvio shares his memories on how he was impacted by the experience and how it shaped his life.
