Script: Agnès Varda
Color: Black and white

In the early 1960s Agnes Varda returned from Cuba with four thousand black-and-white photographs and edited them into the form of a documentary blending images of Castro, musicians, socialism and Cuban music rhythms. It was intended as an homage to the Cuban revolution - an island of social justice in the rough waters of Latin American political regimes. The author admits that it was much easier for her to get to the core of the historical changes in Cuba than in Eastern Europe.
