Directed by Jennifer Ruth Hosek and Jaime Santos Menéndez, Rodando en La Habana: bicycle stories tells of bicycling and community in Havana today, 20 years after the Special Period, when over one million Chinese bicycles were imported to aid survival on an island suddenly without Soviet petroleum. The independent documentary premiered at the 2015 Havana Film Festival, has screened at several others, and will be shown on TeleSur TV. Co-filmmaker Jennifer Ruth Hosek joins UC Davis for a screening and discussion.
