Event description
Barry University presents a free film screening of Emilia: An Untold Cuban-American Story and a Q&A with director-producer Luis Perez Tolón.

About this Event

This documentary explores the life of Emilia Teurbe Tolón, a pioneer for an independent Cuba from Spain. Exiled for insurgency in 1850, Emilia continued to conspire from New York City, where she also embroidered the first Cuban national flag, an important symbol for the emerging nation.

In this film, director and producer Luis Perez Tolón traces his familial roots over two centuries to uncover a forgotten past and inspire future generations to tell their stories. After the screening, Tolón will be on hand for a Q&A with audience members.
