At the age of 28, Andrew Lang completed Sons of Cuba over a three-year production. The film received high praise for its even-handed depiction of contemporary Cuba. It also shows the uncertainty that followed in the wake of Castro s retirement from public office; forming an indelible time capsule of 21st Century Cuban society. Although inspired by Latin American cinema, Lang s use of the observational camera to show his subjects in their daily life deviated from the old-fashioned newsreel approach of his Cuban crew.His film approached his subjects as individuals and collaborators, as displayed in the film s interviews with the children, their family and the coach. This accounts for the special quality of Sons of Cuba. Despite being entirely in Spanish, the film remains an outsider s view of Cuba, attentive to the universal nature of life in a country that has often suffered on account of large-scale misperception and ignorance. Awards and Accreditations:Winner of 14 International Awards.Nominated for British Independent Film Award
