"Give Me Future," a documentary covering the free concert Major Lazer performed in Havana, Cuba in the spring of 2016, is coming to Apple Music on November 17. Apple shared a trailer for the documentary on its YouTube channel yesterday evening.

Directed by Austin Peters, documentary offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Major Lazer concert in addition to exploring Cuban culture and offering up performance footage. From the video description:
In March 2016, following the restoration of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States, electronic dance music trio Major Lazer made history, becoming one of the first major American acts to play in the communist state. Unsure how their descent on Havana would be received and hoping to reach a few tens of thousands, the epic concert unexpectedly drew in close to half a million fans.

Much more than a garden variety music film, "Give Me Future" begins as a behind-the-scenes look at the historic concert and evolves into a masterful exploration of Cuba's inspirational youth movement and its ingenious DIY information culture. Capturing exhilarating performance footage and authentic stories highlighting the country's cultural growth and desire for inclusion in the global community, director Austin Peters conjures a transcendent, rhythm-laced depiction of the powerful catalysts driving a country on the brink of change.
"Give Me Future" debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and will be available exclusively on Apple Music.

Apple needs to go ahead and buy Qello. That would give them a massive amount of music documentaries and concerts

Very cool. Will certainly check it out.

Wired recently had a very interesting article about digital access and content in Cuba. There is no normal internet. But people have created their own Cuba-based services. They've setup a wireless network run by pirates and others. Some unknown folks download massive amounts of data each week. TV shows, movies, news, and more. They then load it onto hard drives. These drives are sold and distributed around to thousands and that's how they all keep connected.

Well worth the read:
