Raw Material.The anniversary of the revolution without Fidel

In 2009, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the revolutionary triumph, the Cuban government summoned the people to a massive parade. 

For the first time was paraded without the presence of Fidel Castro, who for health reasons had withdrawn its mandate. 

A camera goes down to the street and avoid massive record images as those shown on Cuban television to meet face to face with the people ; look and breathe into the crowd and focuses on the individual, pursuing social and behavior patterns.
