"Captures a Cuba that seems frozen in time... a vivid sense of Havana."
- Screen Daily

"A hypnotic immersion into a country and culture embargoed by decades of our country’s foreign policy." – Peter Keough, The Boston Globe

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 his latest film, Hubert Sauper 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.
