The Red Sun in the Sunset
This documentary is an homage to the Japanese emigrants that arrived to Cuba during the first three decades of the Twentieth Century. The documentary's original structure combines monologues and testimonies from children and grandchildren of the founders of the Japanese colony in Cuba. One of the aspects that is shown is the increase of xenophobia during World War II, when they were isolated in a prison.
The economic and social status reached by them in our country left its mark in our economy, our culture and in the new Japanese-Cuban generations.
