"I suppose it all starts with my growing up in the Caribbean, where
Mexico is one of the great cultural centers even today, and even more
so in the 1970s. I grew up with Mexican soap operas, comics, music
and films, but they were so naturalized that I was never curious about
their country of origin because they seem such a normal part of my
world. When I finally made it to Mexico in 1989 1, like so many other
people before, fell in love with the culture... The power of the cultural
products of the Cuban revolution in Latin America is undeniable. It is
very interesting that as different as the Mexican and Cuban posters are
visually, their images are indicative of similar socio-political forces..."
