Epicentro (2020)

1h 48m / Not Rated / Documentary NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM AT HOME!

Epicentro is an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, “utopian” Cuba, where the 1898 explosion of the USS 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 a film that won the Grand Prize for World Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, Oscar-nominated director 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.
