Tocando La Luz
By Jennifer Redfearn and Tim Metzger
TOCANDO LA LUZ / TOUCH THE LIGHT weaves together the lives of three blind women trying to survive in the rapidly changing country of Cuba. Lis is a talented singer who wrestles with self-doubt and the pressure to perform. Margarita struggles to begin life anew after losing her beloved husband. Milly dreams of starting a family, despite her overprotective mother.
From the music halls of Havana, a cinema club for the blind and a national singing competition, their stories reveal both the pain and exhilaration of fighting for independence.
