Cast:  Victor Alvarez
Director:  Gunther Maier

Description:  One among thousands is a documentary about a Cuban musician who returns to the island in search of lost relatives, forgotten songs and, perhaps, a piece of his soul. Victor Alvarez left Havana when he was just 13. Now, more than four decades later, he returns as an outsider and explores revolutionary Cuba. His personal journey is the broader story of the Cuban nation, a country divided by war, revolution and Cold War politics. He is among hundreds of thousands of Cubans who have left the island since 1959.
