Cubans (El Romerillo. Havana, Cuba)
Reel Duration: 8’ 41”
El Romerillo is an old and very poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Havana. Cuban workers heading to Havana from the countryside started settling here in the 1960s, and they built their houses out of whatever materials they could find including corrugated tin and cardboard. El Romerillo became one of Havana’s most notorious slums.
This reel was made possible thanks to the KCHO Studio Art laboratory, a cultural non-profit organization whose purpose is experimentation, development, dissemination of the arts and human understanding. The laboratory was founded by the Cuban artist KCHO.
