Hot Docs Trailers: ‘Havana from on High’

Enjoy the picturesque views of Cuba from new heights in Havana from on High. From filmmaker/photographer Pedro Ruiz (who did our glamour shot of Alanis Obomsawin for the cover of issue #103), Havana from on High takes audiences to the rooftops of central Havana where some of the city’s poorest citizens live atop the city’s buildings in a makeshift village. As the 11 characters gaze at the city below from their unique vantage point, the doc challenges the postcard perfect view of tourism hot spots as the residents reflect on a dire housing crisis and a country on the cusp of change. Havana from on High debuts at Hot Docs on Friday, April 26. Subscribe today to read more about Havana from on High in our upcoming Hot Docs issue!
