dc.description.abstractPichn is a 30-minute documentary that captures the daily life of an Afro-Cuban family, the Galdeses, in the outskirts of La Havana, Cubas capital city. At once observational and participatory, the film focuses on Silvia, Silverio and Estella, three siblings now in their sixties, descendants of Haitian migrant workers who arrived in Cuba in the early 1920s. By superimposing the siblings recollection of the past upon their current-day economic and cultural life, the film locates the Haitian presence in the margins of Cuban society and posits the siblings haitianness as both a place of marginality and asite of resistance.
