2015 was a landmark year for electronic dancehall superband Major Lazer. After topping the charts with their international hit single “Lean On,” the band went on tour, mounting elaborate shows not only in traditional destinations, but also in more challenging locations. Fueled by a dream of “making the world smaller by making the party bigger” and their mission of peace through music, the group decided to offer a free concert in the unlikeliest of venues—downtown Havana, Cuba, where no American band at the height of their fame had previously been allowed to perform. In what began as a concert film intended to document this groundbreaking event, director Austin Peters turns the camera on a burgeoning youth movement, fusing exhilarating performance footage with authentic stories of cultural and political shifts in a country on the precipice of change. In English and Spanish with English subtitles.
