Share Article

Photographer and Director Cesar Augusto has set on an ambitious mission: documenting the pain of Cuban exiles residing in various countries around the world. To do this, Cesar will photograph multitudes of Cubans, all dressed in black, in cities like Miami, London, Paris, Madrid, New York and Havana. A documentary is also going to be produced featuring interviews of Cuban exiles living in these cities.

This project is for the Cuban people who are hungry for a change, who want a new Cuba and who want it NOW!

Photographer and Director Cesar Augusto has set on an ambitious mission: documenting the pain of Cuban exiles residing in various countries around the world. To do this, Cesar will photograph multitudes of Cubans, all dressed in black, in cities like Miami, London, Paris, Madrid, New York and Havana.

It is estimated that more than 1 million Cubans have left the island in a search of a better life without any real possibility of ever coming home. After 52 years of an undeniable dictatorship, Cuba suffers from the same lack of democracy and humanity, maintained by a small group of powerful Cubans in the US as well as the regime on the island. Fifty-two years of entrenchment that has done nothing but destroy the Cuban family and create a never-ending Diaspora.

This project, Cesar says, is for the Cuban people who are hungry for a change, who want a new Cuba and who want it NOW. Both Cuba and the US need to move on and change the policies that have been proven over and over again as useless strategies.

“This is the new generation of Cubans speaking”, Cesar says. "We have never had a voice, either on the island or as exiles. The cold war is over and Fidel Castro is no longer in power. It’s time for a change that can only come by taking a different direction, by doing the opposite of what the US and Cuba has been doing for 52 years."

Let’s change CUBA. Let’s change it NOW.
