NOT!! I watched this, black and white movie from the only Caribbean Island that has consistently produced content for and by it's people .... Cuba. Three segments make up the movie, so you can break this up for a class or workshop very easily. The last flow is a post revolution Caribbean and brutally honest about a 'Guy Thing' that Michele Wallace and Cornell West have pointed out for decades but still many men don't take notice (I know I was just the same back in the day).
The moment, is what happens after our revolution brothers? Be we in Cuba, Eritrea, Algeria etc. When we have called upon women to help produce change. The truth is we have a habit of replacing White Patriarchal power structure with a black/brown one and say to sisters, wives, mothers, grandmothers. "Listen na, massa day done! now is we time, why you don't just leave this serious business to we men, you women go and busy yourself with anyting but this serious business of power."
Z' (still evolving I hope)
