Directed by Hubert Sauper
Epicentro is an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, "utopian" Cuba, where the 1898 explosion of the U.S.S. Maine still resonates. 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 his latest film, Academy Award nominee Hubert Sauper (Darwin's Nightmare) explores a century of interventionism and myth-making together with the extraordinary people of Havana—who he calls "young prophets"—to interrogate time, imperialism and cinema itself.
"Captures a Cuba that seems frozen in time… a vivid sense of Havana."
"A hypnotic immersion into a country and culture embargoed by decades of our country’s foreign policy."
"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."
"A rigorous but compassionate gaze on this remarkable place."
"An excellent exercise in decolonial thinking."
"A film that’s just brimming with ideas."
Winner: Grand Prize, World Documentary – Sundance Film Festival
