Añoranza — DOCUMENTARY
Half a century ago, Cuba got disconnected and missed out on globalization. What supposed to be a revolution of change resulted in drastic boundary. The outside world, dissonant to revolutionary prospects became vaporous, banned from the stage and invisible.
Now at the dawn of re-opening it's borders with the US, three veterans mix and match their personal history with a new invasion of tourists, ambassadors of a never-never land trying to get a glimpse of the remnants of the revolution. Two worlds looking at each other, longing for each other. The busses full of tourists trigger a deep longing for vanished love, time and most of all the places they have never seen. They have waited a lifetime and now, whilst the US prepares for landing, their dreams take off one last time.
