- Program Description
From the Canary Islands to Cuba there was a steady migratory flow. For centuries, the culture of the Canary Islands was assimilated into the habits and customs of the Cuban people, becoming part and parcel of its idiosyncrasy. This documentary film is the picture of a man carrying two islands in his heart.
