** Free Film Showing **

Join Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba (VCSC) for a special screening of 2 Cuban films about the rights of LGBTQ+ people in Cuba.

Featuring:

IN THE WRONG BODY (En el Cuerpo Equivocado) – a 2010 documentary brings the moving story of Mavi Susel, the first transgender person to receive a free sex reassignment surgery in Cuba in 1988.

STRAWBERRY & CHOCOLATE (Fresa y Chocolate) – a 1993 feature film nominated for an Oscar, which brought the ground-breaking story of two Cuban men: one gay, the other straight, one a fierce communist, the other a fierce individualist, one suspicious, the other accepting – and how they learn to love each other.

+ Live Music & Poetry!

WHO ARE THE 5 CUBAN HEROES?
 
Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González, also known as the Cuban 5, are five men who were wrongly accused and convicted in a U.S. Federal Court of “conspiracy to commit espionage” and other fabricated charges, following their arrest and imprisonment in 1998. The 5 were actually unarmed men involved in monitoring Miami-based terrorist organizations, which since 1959 have been responsible for the deaths of over 3,400 people in Cuba, including one resident of Canada, Fabio di Celmo, in 1997. Through their important work, these 5 men were able to prevent further deaths in Cuba. As of March, 2014 René González and Fernando González have both returned permanently to Cuba in a great victory for justice-loving people all over the world. Gerardo, Ramón, and Antonio remain unjustly in U.S. jails facing sentences up to double-life plus 15 years.
