🎥 The Film

On July 11, 2021, thousands put their life on the line by taking to the streets in cities and towns throughout Cuba, shouting in unison Libertad! (Freedom!), showing the world the consequences of empty promises made by a 62-year-old Revolution. Through the voices and artwork of courageous individuals living in Cuba, ELLOS GRITAN LIBERTAD (THEY SCREAM FREEDOM) will awaken the world to the island’s disturbing realities.

A self-taught filmmaker, Melinda received most of her training as an actor on set. After almost ten years of acting in other people’s films, Melinda decided to make her own; films that speak from her heart, told through the voices of society’s invisible. Giving a voice to those who are typically forgotten in our society. Find out more about Melinda and her work HERE
