Cuba on the move. The opening to the West holds both opportunities and risks in equal measure for the socialist holiday paradise with its eventful history. For “Cuba On The Go” the Cuban actor Fernando Spengler, who lives for ten years in Germany, embarks on a journey through his home country. The documentary series shows the change and the spirit of optimism on site. It shows life designs that recently wouldn’t have been possible in Cuba. In an entertaining way Fernando Spenglers’ road trip through his home becomes a detailed evaluation of the country’s’ situation: Here everybody longs for the opening to a new world but at the same time doesn’t lose sight of the well-being of Cuba. Every development, every idea has a holistic approach. And as one of Fernando’s companions says: “No matter where we go, we’ll always remain Cubans.”
