This is a project I worked on to commemorate the grand opening of Cuba's embassy in Washington D.C. - the first time there has been an active Cuban embassy in the United States in 54 years. The video, set to La Flaca by Jarabe de Palo, shows the buzz generated by news crews, celebrations on the sidewalks, protests in the streets, interviews with Cubans in attendance, the first flag raising, and a revolutionary garbage man.
