Cubanas Mujeres en Revolución is a 90 minutes film with English subtitles produced by Resumen Latinoamericano. It has been shown in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Panama, Venezuela, Spain, France, Canada, England and Turkey and will now be shown for the first time in the United States.  This film evokes the continuous role of women in the Revolution, both in the guerrilla struggle and in the construction of the new Cuban society, through the testimonies of heroines such as Vilma Espín, Celia Sánchez and Haydée Santamaría, the founding figures of the Revolution, and also of contemporary women from different sectors of Cuban society. Reflections and life experiences that show how these women were nourished by the values built in the revolutionary struggle in the late 1950s.

Organized by Resumen Latinoamericano, the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity and Task Force on the Americas.
