About

Working with artists and communities across Cuba, media arts producers Threshold Studios introduce the first in a series of collaborative projects presenting a multi-faceted snapshot of a country undergoing social, political and economic transformation following the lifting of the United States trade embargo. Stepping out of cultural and political isolation for the first time in over half a century, as the internet and global cultural influence begin to spread across the country, Threshold are assisting Cuban communities to voice the impact of that change from their own perspectives, documenting their lives, opinions, hopes and concerns as they look towards a new, fast approaching future. Threshold invite audiences to connect directly to Cuba through the eyes of its artists and communities, capturing life as it was, is, and will be, as the tide of history sweeps through Cuban society.
