Embargo [electronic resource]

Almost half a century of American economic and commercial sanctions have left Cuba impoverished, but far from being crushed, the Cuban people embrace the opportunity to improvise. "You can't just buy things," a woman explains. "You have to invent them." One entrepreneur fashioned a motorbike from parts of a Chinese bicycle and the front of a Soviet rig; and with no cosmetics available, women concoct homemade alternatives using shoe polish and crayons. Capturing the vibrancy of everyday life on the streets of Havana, this film is an inspiring tribute to Cuban creativity necessitated by the American trade embargo.
