Status: Completed

Director(s): Hubert Sauper

Short synopsis : From world-renowned filmmaker Hubert Sauper – director of Sundance winner WE COME AS FRIENDS and the Oscar®-nominated DARWIN’S NIGHTMARE – comes EPICENTRO, an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, “utopian”Cuba, where the 1898 explosion of the USS Maine still resonates.

Long synopsis : This Big Bang ended Spanish colonial dominance in the Americas and ushered in the era of the American Empire. At the same time and place, a powerful tool of conquest was born: cinema as propaganda. In EPICENTRO, Sauper explores a century of interventionism and myth-making together with the extraordinary people of Havana-particularly its children, who he calls “young prophets” – to interrogate time, imperialism and cinema itself.
