BRAZIL — CUBA 13 MIN, 2019
An outcast makes a journey through a dam in Sierra Maestra, place of origin of the Cuban Revolution. As in a short story, we are guided through this attenuate landscape gradually crossing the delineae cartography of a body that with every movement is diluted, finally becoming one with the habitat.
