Cuba's Digital Revolution

For decades, Cuba has been shielded from the digital revolution that has spread around the world. But that is changing. This new Bertelsmann Foundation film dives into the stories behind the statistics.

What are the drivers of change in Cuba? How has the Cuban government managed this evolution? And what is the impact for a country slowly finding its way online?

Shot on location in Cuba, this film by Samuel George captures a critical moment for a country in transition.

This video is part of the Bertelsmann Foundation’s Disrupting Democracy initiative, a global project managed by Trans-Atlantic Director Anthony Silberfeld that investigates how digital technology is changing our world. The initiative will culminate with the release of a multi-case study publication (US, Germany, India, Israel and Cuba) in Washington, DC on September 28.
