Cuba has gone through some heartbreaking and astonishing times during its history. One such story is that of Los Frikis, a Cuban punk community that emerged in the ’80s.

Los Frikis was a lot like other punk movements around the world happening during that time, except in Cuba, they were not well received…they were persecuted.  Many were rejected by their families, harassed, arrested, and forced to do manual labor.
