Description:
A fascinating exploration of the dramatic transformations in Cuban art, literature, and cultural-political discourse in the post-Fidel era.

Cuba has changed significantly in recent years, from seemingly minor allowances (such as the introduction of cell phones) to large-scale economic revisions. At the same time, many other changes unrelated to the political leadership of the island have changed everyday life in Cuba, from environmental challenges to new forms of consumption.

Planet/Cuba examines how art and literature have responded to a new moment at once more globalized and less exceptional, more concerned with local quotidian worries than international alliances; more threatened by the devastations of planetary capitalism and climate change than by the vagaries of the nation's government.
