"Reina de Mi Misma, Queen of Myself: Las Krudas d' Cuba" is a documentary film exploring the feminist work of Krudas Cubensi, also known as Las Krudas, an all-women creative trio from Cuba. It narrates the impact the trio has had in the Afro-centric and underground hip hop spheres in La Habana and the United States. Actual and chosen family members, Las Krudas first came together when they decided to form the street theater group Topazankos Cubensi in 1996 and as the hip hop group Krudas Cubensi since 1999. Recently, for personal and professional reasons Las Krudas decided to leave Cuba—first Odalys in 2005 and then Odaymara and Olivia in October of 2006. The film explores how their spiritual and economic subsistence through the arts—both in Cuba as well as in the United States diaspora. They exemplify the intricate ways in which Caribbean women embody the everyday sociopolitical, economic and cultural negotiations that occur within and in between nations.
