The Man of Two Havanas

Miami Beach Cinematheque. From Sep 22nd through Sep 24th, 2008.  Miami Beach Cinematheque. Miami FilmThe Miami Beach Cinematheque presents the documentary film by Vivien Lesnik The Man of Two Havanas on September 22nd, 2008 at 8:00 p.m.

With a childhood filled with bombings and assassination attempts on her father, the filmmaker explores her relationship with him and the Cuba he left behind. Through the prism of a daughter we explore the past, the present, and the nature of social responsibility and personal sacrifice. 

"OK. Here’s the situation. I was born in Havana. That makes me Cuban. But, I was raised in little Havana, which makes me Cuban-American. However, since I don’t see Castro as the root of all evil in the universe, nor would I strangle him with my bare hands if given the opportunity, I am a little out of step with my tribe. And I really don’t care. But my father does care. He cares a great deal…" said Vivien Lesnik Weisman.
