The West has constructed a narrative of Cuba as a nation on the cusp of political, social, economic, and cultural change, while simultaneously clinging to the converse and romantic notion of a country marooned in the past. This screening, and exhibition challenges these ideas through a range of differing and subjective perspectives on the complexities of the Cuban experience.

Against the backdrop of this narrative, a group of documentary filmmakers from all over the world descend on Cuba during the summer of 2017. They are met with the brief of telling a story of Cuban reality in just one month, making six collaborate group projects and their own personal work.

Behind the tensions, which manifest throughout the process, lie the complexity of hastily-built relationships; differences in perceptions and allegiances, and historical, political and social context. Resolution of different points of view result in finished works which comment on the process of representation, on the ephemerality of truth, and the strengths and weaknesses of the documentary form.
