This is the first film I ever composed with my beloved 5D Mark ii. I traveled with my brother and mother for the first time to the country that was home to my ancestors for four generations. Throughout this trip I was able to see where my mother was born, where my parents lived when they were children, and the span of the entire country.
"Cuba" is a vignette of my life and my roots, a gift to my mother on her birthday, and reminder of what has been the running theme in my life: Overcoming. I'm proud to bear the surname Dieguez, and I hope everyone will seek out the opportunity to experience their own beginning.
