Re-Evolution: Salud -

RE-EVOLUTION: SALUD is part of filmmaker Cray Novick's ongoing, thoughtful look at Cuba and its culture. This special focuses on Cuba's unique management of health and agricultural resources, and how development in these areas could highlight possible solutions to global challenges. The program follows a Cuban doctor and nurse on home visits to see how Cubans access healthcare, while a focus on biomedical technology in the country reveals how the ongoing U.S. embargo has impacted distribution of medicines that have promise in helping with symptoms of diabetes. The half-hour film also visits Escuela Latinoamericana de Medicina (ELAM) in Havana, one of the world's largest schools of medicine, where international students compare their experiences between Cuba and their home countries. Finally, RE-EVOLUTION: SALUD explores green medicine and agriculture via a farmer attempting to balance sustainable practices and the needs of his workers.
