Five decades after Castro's revolution, Cuba's Secret Side explores Cuba's dual personality: the side seen on newsreels and by tourists, and the reality lived by its vibrant and astoundingly diverse people. Knowing that the Cuban government severely restricts all foreign journalists, Karin Muller took an enormous risk and she set out to film a documentary on a simple tourist visa. Free of government minders, she hitchhiked around Cuba for three months, sleeping in private homes, working with farmers and fishermen, and participating in festivals and religious ceremonies. She was arrested over a dozen times, but in the end she captured on film a side of Cuba that few foreigners ever see.

A wonderful look at life in Cuba outside the usual tourist enclaves. Accented with interesting background on how and why the island is the way it is today, and some amazing "inside" views of daily life and a marvellous people!
