Cuba Solidarity Film Screening

CUBA SOLIDARITYCAMPAIGN East Kent Branch

TWO FILMS:

A SHORT – ‘LET THERE BE LIGHT’
How Cuba is giving free eye operations to thousands of Caribbean and Latin American people.

AND THE PREMIERE OF
‘HEALING AFRICA-THE HAVANA PRESCRIPTION’
A new film by local director Tom Fawthrop.Who will be in attendance to discuss it with you.

This traces the journey of students from South Africa’s poorest to fulfilling their dream – to become the doctors that are so badly needed by their rural communities. Little reported by the Western world, Cuba is the only country that provides over 20,000 free scholarships a year to 34 countries in Africa and the rest of the developing world. We film the progress of five South African students through Cuban medical school, and in SA we look at the role of Cuban trained doctors in building a different kind of health system.
