With Ana Golja, Louis Gossett Jr., Shohreh Aghdasloo


THE CUBAN is a powerful heart-warming experience of music, friendship, family and loyalty that highlights the humanity of some of the most vulnerable in our society. Academy award winner Louis Gossett Jr. expands his repertoire of exceptional performances in the role of Luis, an elderly Cuban musician who is brought out of his shell by his care worker, a young Afghan immigrant named Mina. Her attempts to get through to Luis are futile until she discovers the music. A poster of Benny More inspires Mina to hum a jazz tune that ignites a spark inside him. As each day passes the music awakens Luis more and more until the colourful world of his past becomes vibrant and real again. In English and Spanish with English subtitles.
