For decades, Cuba has been shielded from the digital revolution that has spread around the world. But that is changing. This new film dives into the stories behind the statistics.

What are the drivers of change in Cuba? How has the Cuban government managed this evolution? And what is the impact for a country slowly finding its way online?  And what lessons can we learn in the US about bridging the digital divide and dealing with online safety issues in the Hispanic communities here in the States.

Shot on location in Cuba, this film by Samuel George of the Bertelsmann Foundation captures a critical moment for a country in transition.
