Cuba, 1990s. Amidst economic, political and social strife, young people turned to music as a source of salvation. In this rousing music doc with fabulous concert scenes, some of Cuba’s leading artists look back at their formative years. As the government banned the export of art, many were forced to flee to pursue their vision; others stayed behind to fight the system from within. Through intimate interviews, these artists chronicle their defiant personal journeys that changed the history of Cuban music. A Todo Color also includes concert scenes that capture the dynamism and prowess of these talented musicians.

Includes a post-screening Q&A with musicians from all-female Cuban jazz sextet Jane Bunnett and Maqueque: Jane Bunnett and Magdelys Savigne. Moderated by Mervon Mehta, Executive Director of The Royal Conservatory of Music's Performing Arts Division.
