RETOUR Á CUBA Á LA RECHERCHE DE LATINA (Directed by Didier Mauro) *
Desiderius loses Latina during a possession Tromba cult in Madagascar. Desiderius, a photographer, films parts of Cuba as he looks for Latina. In so doing, he talks to several people who attest to the magnificence of the Revolution.
An annoying motif of Latina’s face, a young woman, is shown as silly music plays to mark several moments when the searcher travels in a car to another place rumoured to be where Latina is. Lines from Dali and Buňel pop up as supers. Life and death topics are touched upon as people tale to Desiderius. Latina is really Oshua, spirit God. Cuba never looked so dull.
