Cubans (Trinidad & Tobacco Factory. Vinales, Cuba)
Reel Duration: 11’21”
“Every day we must perfect what we did yesterday.” This hand-written quote by Che Guevara adorns the wall of a tobacco production facility in Vinales, in the Western part of Cuba. Here women workers carefully sort out dried tobacco leaves. The aroma of fresh tobacco fills the air as skilled hands groom the leaves. The scene is intercut and accompanied by the music of a classic Cuban song performed by talented street musicians in Trinidad.
