Lost in Havana 2016 teaser

This film chronicles the outlandish results as earlier this year a band of skaters from Canada and Austria smuggled in a pile of skateboards into Cuba to give away to underprivileged kids. It’s clear from the get-go that good intentions and communist bureaucracy clash like velvet dingle-balls around the windscreen of a 1982 Lada 1600 sedan. Juergen Gritzner, a pro skater from Austria, walks us through a comical fish out of water story that is vivid in colour and rich in cultural awkwardness. Award-winning film maker Soren Johnstone (Play with Fire, Hicks on Sticks) shot and edited this very enjoyable story despite his own run in with hallucinogenic jelly fish.
