“Everything is enchanted…Havana means heaven.. the dwelling place of angels,” says the narrator of this beautifully shot tone poem of Cuba by Academy Award nominee Hubert Sauper (Darwin’s Nightmare)  World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2020 Sundance Festival, Epicentro is a beautiful visual essay that ranges from “Columbus’ first landing on Cuba as the dawn of colonialism; the birth of utopianism at the very same time the New World was discovered; the legacy of the Spanish-American War and Teddy Roosevelt’s imperialist ambitions for the island. Consistently engaging and surprising….like the impressive waves we see encroaching on the island throughout, the film comes in crests and ebbs, and feels like it could have gone on for hours.” – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter.

Reviews

A brilliant mixture of historical-poetic analysis and a ground-level journey among the denizens of Havana. The director’s remarkable eye… will mesmerize you.
