Michael Dweck's illuminating portrayal of Cuba's creative class, Michael Dweck: Habana Libre, brings to light the country's secretive social order. In a "classless" society, Dweck's subjects are leaders. They are also beautiful, elegant, and international.
He captures glamorous models, skaters, and renowned artists, and each image is more powerful than the next. Most importantly, Dweck, who studied fine arts at the Pratt Institute, has an eye for seductive angle. His is the perfect lens through which this compelling story is told.
Michael Dweck: Habana Libre succeeds in opening up a new world and exposing a hidden part of Cuban society.
