CINE CUBANO, RHYTHMS ON AND OFF THE SCREEN

The Forbidden Shore

RON CHAPMAN
Canada, 2016
96 minutes, Color
Official website

In Person: Director Ron Chapman

The amazing diversity of contemporary Cuban music is gorgeously explored in Ron Chapman's third documentary feature. With this ambitious new film, Chapman captures the full gamut of what's happening now in Cuba. We meet the most exciting artists and experience the distinct musical scenes they move in, from classic song and salsa to trova, nueva trova, reggaton, rock, jazz, metal, rap, electronic, classical, choral, pop, changu, danzón, rumba, yoruba, bolero, conga, timba, mambo, and more. The film's wonderful soundtrack comprises music new and old; the sounds of modern iconoclasts and the immortal music of the old guard. This is a one-of-a-kind journey into the heart and soul of a sonic culture like no other, a place where music is cultivated and thrives through the enduring desire of its people to forge a sound that is all their own.—Miami International Film Festival

Ron Chapman (Director/Producer/Writer)

Before becoming an award-winning filmmaker, Canada-born Ron Chapman was first a musician. He was then a music manager and producer, and his famous Toronto music club, The Edge, served as a gateway for many international artists. For decades he directed and produced television commercials and music videos and, in addition to his filmmaking, he now focuses on brand development. His first film, Who the F**K is Arthur Fogel, came out in 2013, followed by The Poet of Havana (2015) and now The Forbidden Shore (2016). His fascination with Cuba comes from what he sees as its musical purity that has resulted from its decades of isolation. He has recently completed his own album.
