After the Revolution of 1959, Cuba exceeded in producing culturally rich posters and films. In particular, the Instituto Cubano del Arte y la Industria Cinematrograficos (ICAIC) was established in result of the culture law developed by the revolutionary government.

The plan to disseminate these ideas involved travel film exhibitions, of which Bolivia was one of the countries who hosted a week of Cuban film.
