MPI-Supported Documentary Screens in Cuba

January 22, 2020

The MPI-supported feature-length documentary Los Últimos Frikis premiered last month in Cuba to a packed house during the Havana Film Festival. 

From MPI filmmaker Nicholas Brennan, the film follows communist Cuba’s legendary heavy metal band Zeus—the most popular rock stars you’ve never heard off—for 10 years, documenting their struggles to express themselves inside this closed society. Battling against the country’s Agency of Rock and the restrictions of its socialist model, frontman Diony Arce and his band of metalheads fight to realize their dreams of stardom despite the limitations thrown in their way.

The documentary previously premiered at the prestigious DOC NYC and has received positive attention from media outlets including Rolling Stone and BlabberMouth
