The Forbidden Shore explores the myriad forms of contemporary music being played in Cuba, through the extraordinary and unlimited access filmmaker Ron Chapman has had to the streets, the people, the musicians and the stories of contemporary Cuba.
Nowhere else has there been such an inextricable relationship between political realities and the unquenchable desire for the Cuban artist to express their music and voice freely. The tension between austerity and creativity, and between the rhythms of day-to-day Cuban life and the undeniable rhythms of blended cultural influences are evident in every frame.
Through concert and street performances, and revealing interviews with musicians, artists and every day Cuban citizens, you’ll get a view of how spirited life is like on these shores.
Unique, amazing and beautiful footage – of concerts, interviews, musicians, artists, personal moments, dramatic stories, laughter and tears – a stunning chronicle of the lives, loves, stories and dreams of the people shrouded from the view of nearby shores.
