Epicentroa film by Hubert Sauper
DOCUMENTARY | 2018 | A, FR | 90 min | Spanisch
Cuba is well known as a so-called time capsule. The very place where the New World was discovered has become both a romantic and a warning window into American and world history. Both the beauty and the decadence of the 50s have been preserved through economic embargos and isolation. The island allows us a glimpse – bleak or optimistic – into the planet’s future: in the case of global energy scarcity, cultural or financial crisis, large parts of the world could face a similar kind of existence. Through encounters with (extra) ordinary people, Hubert Sauper takes us on a new journey, entering the thoughts and dreams of Cuban society in an era of transition and change, placing his characters at the center of a far bigger, planetary narrative.
