Summary
From filmmaker Hubert Sauper comes an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, 'utopian' Cuba. This Big Bang ended Spanish colonial dominance in the Americas and ushered in the era of the American Empire. At the same time, a powerful tool of conquest was born: cinema as propaganda. Sauper explores a century of interventionism and myth making together with the extraordinary people of Havana, particularly its children, to interrogate time, imperialism and cinema itself.
