Thank you (see below; I spent a couple months in Havana, so perhaps I’m overly attuned to the story). Readers are also encouraged to check out the Miami Herald, for obvious reasons.

Also: “Clandestinos: Contemporary Cuban Film and Video” runs through Friday at the Gene Siskel Film Center, though there’s only one film left in the series, the Chicago premiere of 90 Miles. Furthermore: the local documentary Dream Havana screens at Facets on Wednesday.
