“Craving Cuba is a documentary film about Cuban-Americans and their complicated relationship with Cuba. This is a story about identity, family, exile and hope. Follow the journey of a Cuban-American woman who was born in New Jersey to Cuban-exiles and has never been to Cuba. Although she has always felt very American, there was always a strong pull to the other half of her identity. Like most in the exiled community, she grew up not being able to go to Cuba. After the December 17th announcement by President Barack Obama, everything changes.

The directors, Bay Area filmmakers, interview singer/actor Carlos Ponce, NBC- news anchor Jessica Aguirre, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, Soledad O’Brien, and other notable Cuban-Americans today.

She interviews people throughout the US, strives to balance between conservative and liberal views, questions stereotypes and explores what it means to be Cuban-American in a time when the whole world is obsessed with Cuba.”
