 VCSC Cuba Solidarity Cultural Night & Film Showing!

Live Music & Vancouver Premiere of the Beautiful Cuban Film

 

* HABANASTATION *

 

Thursday, FEBRUARY 12 - 7PM
Joe's Cafe (in Large North Hall)
1150 Commercial Dr (at William St)
Vancouver, Canada

Join us for a special evening of poetry, live music and the Vancouver premiere of the Cuban feature film HABANASTATION!

Cuba's official entry to the 84th Academy Awards, HABANASTATION traces the lives of two Cuban classmates with different upbringings. 12 year old Mayito possesses a much sought after Playstation 3 thanks to his famous jazz musician father who brings one back from a tour abroad. His classmate Carlos has never even seen a Playstation, and resents the teasing he receives from Mayito and other classmates because of this.

A unforeseen turn of events at the May 1st rally in Havana forces Mayito to seek Carlos' help in unfamiliar territory, and what follows is an unforgettable journey of discovery through one of the world’s most fascinating cities.

Featuring actors from La Colmenita, Cuba's world famous children's theatre group!

Film in Spanish with English Subtitles

>> ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL CHE GUEVARA CONFERENCE <<
Since the triumph of Cuba’s 1959 revolution to today, the vision and political ideas that shape the Cuban revolution remain a source of inspiration, discussion and debate around the world. Through the ideas of Fidel, Che, the Cuban socialist project, and the dynamics of the mass revolutionary movement, Cuba has become a country renowned for its achievements in health, education, culture, science and many other aspects of social and human progress. The Cuban socialist project and the Cuban revolutionary leadership, despite 50 years of an inhuman and criminal blockade by consecutive US administrations, have never wavered to imperialist pressure.

The International Che Guevara Conference is an opportunity to discuss and debate the ideas of the Cuban revolution, its dynamism and how it has impacted Latin America and the world.

The first International Che Guevara Conference in 2008 was on the theme, “Che Guevara, Thinker & Fighter: Are His Ideas Relevant for the 21st Century?” The Second International Che Conference in 2009 was on, “50 Years of Dynamism of the Cuban Revolution.” The Third International Che Conference in 2010 was on, “Cuba & Revolutionary Internationalism.” The Fourth International Che Conference in 2011 was on, “Cuba Today – The Gains and the Challenges.”

The 2012 International Che Guevara Conference discussed the most importance changes Cuba has seen in the last 50 years since Fidel's Second Declaration of Havana, in 1961. This conference, titled “Cuba's Reforms: Capitalism or Socialism” investigated, with the participation of 6 Cuban guests including  Aleida Guevara, daughter of Che Guevara, the roots of the current reforms and their future prospects and challenges.

In 2015 the Che Conference returns with, “Cuba, A Socialist Project in Progress” which aims to delve deeper into what has made the Cuban Socialist Revolution successful move forward and how it is evolving today.

This year's conference we will also discuss the recent developments in US/Cuba relations. This includes the historic victory of the return to Cuba of all 5 Cuban Heroes who were unjustly imprisoned for over 16 years in US jails. As well, we will examine the announcements by Cuban President Raul Castro and US President Barack Obama that new steps towards normalization of relations would occur between the two countries. This announcement has come over 50 years after the US broke diplomatic relations and imposed a cruel and ongoing blockade on Cuba. What has changed?
