QUéBEC/CANADA | 65 minutes | 2018

Two young women from Québec, Manu and Alexa-Jeanne, head to Cuba for a holiday. There, they soak up the rays, frolic in the surf, dine out and wander through Havana. The contours of their friendship take shape through chance meetings and informal discussions with the locals — exchanges that also nod to a certain vision of humanity and North/South relations. Director Alex B. Martin’s first (and entirely independent) film sparkles with the chemistry of its two leads. A freewheeling yarn that unfolds largely after night falls in the sublimely tumble-down city. WORLD PREMIERE
