The latest documentary from Oscar-nominated director Hubert Sauper guides us to the American continent, and draws the immersive portrait Cuba through its relationship to the USA. Sauper draws comparison between imperialism and cinema, the power of images and empire. Cuba, living under centuries of colonialism, unfolds through the eyes of its inhabitants. In this free-flowing and episodic film, the concepts of imperialism and racism are explained by children, locals enthusiastically misinterpret the meaning of enigmatic buildings, and even Chaplin's granddaughter shows up for a scene.
