(This article expired 04.02.2013.)

On February 7, the Embassy of the Czech Republic welcomed about 130 people to the screening of the documentary film Cuba’s Hope. The film was followed by a discussion with Jordan Allott, executive producer, and Simon Panek, founder and executive director of the Czech non-governmental organization People in Need.

The film Cuba´s Hope tells a story of 5 Cuban people - a blogger, a student, a professor, a journalist and a musician who had the courage to openly speak about their desire for change in Cuba. For more information, please visit the film´s website.

The following discussion centered not only around the story behind making the film but also around the current situation in Cuba, the state of the US-Cuba relations and the fight for democracy and human rights.
