In post-colonial, “utopian” Cuba, the 1898 explosion of the U.S.S. Maine still resonates. Exploring a century of interventionism and myth-making, the extraordinary people of Havana interrogate time, imperialism and cinema itself.
A Grand Jury Prize-winner at Sundance, Epicentro is a brilliant portrait of Cuba’s past, present, and future. Oscar®-nominated director Hubert Sauper (Darwin’s Nightmare) reconsiders the relationship between imperialism and cinema, crafting a politically urgent and wonderfully spirited documentary.
