BLONDIE: VIVIR EN LA HABANA touches on subjects ranging from the influence of Cuban artists, the crossover from Havana to NYC, politics, and the last-minute surprise and disappointment that Chris Stein unexpectedly didn’t go on the trip. It is a dream-like portrait of this legendary band’s first experience in Havana and of the magical exchange between musicians from the two cities each call home and their intertwined influence.
