"Sister Havana" (1993)
Not sure what is being conveyed in this song and video. On the one hand the singer is asking his "Sister" to "come around to my way of thinking," though what that thinking is is unclear. Does he want her to help him and others "overthrow" Fidel Castro, or does he want to "overthrow" "Sister Havana"?
Who is "Sister Havana"? Is she someone who lives in a shack outside of Havana, or in a shack outside of Miami?
As for the opening scene, that too is confusing. To my knowledge, Jacques Lacan never had a beard. And what's he doing smoking one of Bill Clinton's cigars?
