Although Americans tourists are banned from entering the country, I went under the journalism category.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible  (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.

We are here at IAAPA, I recently finished a script, "Indiana Jones and the Secrets of Martha Vineyard," which I'll soon submit to Lucasfilm. It's tough in Hollywood nowadays where you must be  a WGA member and having your own agent to do the negotiations to pitch your ideas. A Deaf Anthology film is in pre--production stage as of this moment, now it's just a matter of securing financial support, hiring Deaf crew and actors, and finding a distributor.
