I grew up in Cuba in the 70´s and 80´s, and I find it was a unique experience. I feel that during those years we lived in a different world, somehow “unreal”. I remember I was very happy. I lived a tranquil and different life style. We were raised according to “revolutionary ideals”, in a place where we all felt equal and where material values had lost importance. Us, the Pioneers, we were “the forgers of the future”. We would be « the new man » that Che had imagined. “The sugar curtain” intends to rescue that reality we had when we were children, and it explores what happened to my generation, that generation born and raised under the Cuban Revolution whose values “fell down” the moment they entered adulthood.
