One racer enlists the help of a CubanAmerican patron in Miami to bring in parts for his modern Porsche. His main competitor is a renowned mechanic who uses ingenuity rather than resources to create a racing machine out of his 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Another racer ponders whether he will participate in the race or sell his motor — one that he recovered on the ocean floor from a ship used to smuggle Cubans off the island — in order to flee Cuba on a raft headed to Florida. Through these racers’ experiences, Havana Motor Club explores how Cuba is changing today, and also what its future holds in light of Obama’s recent move to normalize relations. This film contains strong language, brief crude content and brief disturbing archive footage. In Spanish with English subtitles
