PROJECT OF THE CENTURY, THE

THE PROJECT OF THE CENTURY [La obra del siglo]

Twenty years after the collapse of the USSR, a Soviet-funded nuclear city in Cuba sits abandoned, never completed. After breaking up with his girlfriend, 30-year-old Leo returns to the ghost city to live with his father, grandfather and pet fish. As the London Olympic games play on TV, the three generations of sad sacks ponder their fates. Filmmaker Carlos Quintela (THE SWIMMING POOL, 2013 AFI Latin American Film Festival) brings this drolly surreal film to life in images of stark black and white, with fascinating archival footage from Cuban television. Tiger Award, 2015 Rotterdam Film Festival; Official Selection, 2015 Miami, Sydney, BAFICI, Jerusalem Film Festivals.
