Photos: Havana Motor Club Captures the Grit and Hope of Cuba’s Frankencar Culture

The documentary Havana Motor Club is rich with the grease and glory of American muscle cars in Cuba. Set in a country that's reimagining itself, the movie follows friends and rivals as they work to resurrect the  car-racing heritage that flourished in Cuba before Fidel Castro’s 1959 revolution. Many of the cars involved are constructed halfway from scratch, and the film by Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt, which made its debut at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, documents how it feels to work for something you love without knowing for certain if you’ll succeed. See the highlights below.
