Tommaso Santambrogio – Italy, Cuba 2023 – 119 minutes – spoken language: Spanish, with English subtitles

Alex and Edith, a young couple in their 30s, nurture a relationship made up of small gestures and tenderness among the ruins of Cuban buildings. Milagros, an elderly retired woman, survives selling peanut cones on the street and spends her days listening to the radio and reading out old letters. Frank and Alain, two nine-year-old best friends, go to school and dream of emigrating to the United States to become Major League Baseball players.
In San Antonio De Los Baños, a town in inland Cuba where time seems to stand still, three worlds flow and unfold. Over this contemporary reality, together with the characters’ dreams and memories, hovers the constant spectre of separation and its defining force in shaping Cuban lives and destinies.

This film is preceded by a film from our Eco Shorts competition: Flatastic by Alice Saey
(France, Netherlands 2024 – 17 minutes)
Manta rays, fed up with our plastics, start a revolution in this symphonic eruption of sound, bright colours and anthropomorphism.

This month Movie W shows films from the Sprouts Film Festival Program on four Wednesday evenings.
About Sprouts Film Festival: In times of a glitching world, with weather extremes and inhumane conflicts intensifying, it can be tempting to avert your gaze. Instead, Sprouts wants to make the cinema a site for peaceful protest by showing newly released ecocinema and socially critical debut films. All selected features and shorts are fiction, because it is our belief that through the power of
imagination we can alter our behaviour for the better and rethink our relationship with the more-than-human world. We are here to make you wonder, to inform, to spark resistance and to nurture fresh talent.
