Cuba's Cinematic Élan Vital

Posted on Thursday 24th July 2014

Professor Rob Stone and University of Cambridge doctoral student Dunja Fehimović  recently published a co-written article on contemporary filmmaking in present-day Cuba in The Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies.

Available here via Free Access from Routledge Area Studies, the article entitled ‘Cuba’s Cinematic Élan Vital: Cubanidad and Cubanía as Citizenship and Sentiment’ offers a richly theoretical reading of recent documentary films from Cuban filmmakers that focusses on current shifts in expressions of Cuban national identity.
