Despertar (Awakening). 2011. Cuba. Directed by Ricardo Figueredo Oliva and Anthony Bubaire. 52 min.
Awakening looks at the life of Raudel Collazo Pedroso, a Cuban rapper and member of Escuadrón Patriota (Patriot Squad), a hip-hop group known for its harsh criticism of the Cuban establishment. The film was excluded from the Young Exhibition, organized by the Film Institute itself, "for not abiding by the cultural policies of the ICAIC." The director of the exhibition, filmmaker Fernando Pérez, resigned from his post in 2012 after expressing his disagreement with that decision.
