Winner of the World Documentary Grand Jury Award at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, Epicentro takes you to the mythical streets of Havana, where residents have withstood decades of pressure from colonial forces. Academy Award–nominated director Hubert Sauper (Darwin’s Nightmare) explores contemporary perspectives from an extraordinary cast of characters from the golden isle, accompanied by images of a "utopian" Cuba—a country still sitting frozen in time. A brilliant mixture of historical documentary and immersive travelogue, this film will mesmerize you and offer a fascinating new perspective on an old world.
