Golden Scars (Alexandrine Boudreaux-Fournier, 2010) offers an intimate portrait of the realities facing young musicians in contemporary Cuba, following the unique stories of two young rappers born in Santiago de Cuba. Going beyond issues of politics and revolution, the documentary examines the roots of this expressive urban culture, the inspiration and passion of the artists, as well as the tensions and personal struggles with which they are confronted. Approximate length of film is 60 minutes.

Cuban hip-hop artist Alaín García Artola is unfortunately unable to join us on this occasion, due to visa issues.
