Firmo Soy Cardumen – against censorship

Provoked by the unnecessary and unwelcome meddling by the Cuban authorities regarding Yimit Ramírez’s film Qhup – Quiero hacer una película, young Cuban artists have published a declaration demanding less censorship and more respect for independent filmmakers. They have also received support from those more established filmmakers who have been demanding reforms for the past five years under the name “g-20”.

Since I do not speak Spanish, I will not insult you by trying to produce a half-baked summary of the May 2018 declaration. You can find the original here or here, and will find more information on Facebook and Twitter.

English-language, on the other hand, information is few and far between. But you could have a look at these pages:
