Anoranza the documentary about Cuba directed by Flo Flamme is selected for the Golden Apricot Festival 2016.
Half a century ago, Cuba got disconnected and missed out on globalization. What supposed to be a revolution resulted in drastic boundary. Trapped between the walls of the ocean, the older Cubans’ worldview and ideals mutated inch by inch. Recently a pragmatic gamble of using capitalism to save socialism paid off, but it nevertheless produced a disorientated generation. In their autumn days the international travel agents send buses full of ambassadors of a never-never land. It triggers their longing for a vanished time and places they have never seen. In Añoranza their dreams take off one last time, unhindered by delays, available seats or traffic jams.
Anoranza was written & directed by Flo Flamme and produced by Minds Meet with the of the VAF and CFWB.
