P.O.V., public television’s award-winning independent non-fiction film series, presents
OUR HOUSE IN HAVANA
By Stephen Olsson
A co-presentation with Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB)
Week of Tuesday, July 25th at 10pm ET on PBS (check your local listings)
After 40 years, Sylvia Morini returns to the palatial house of her youth in Cuba, where her nostalgia for a pre-Castro world confronts modern Cuban reality. Filmmaker Stephen Olsson presents Sylvia’s tapestry of rose-colored memories, history, culture, and tragic-comic encounters, contrasting sharply with recollections from working-class Cubans. Yet as Sylvia discovers an evolving Cuba, she herself undergoes a surprising change -- not entirely altering her political outlook but becoming, as she puts it, "more human."
