HORIZONTES by Eileen Hofer
70' | 2015 | Switzerland
Cuba. A dance school. In the shadow of Alicia Alonso, the island’s most famous ballerina, an adolescent and a young woman on the eve of the consecration to her career feel the weight of their dreams. A three-headed portrait and the image of a country fed by ghosts – that of Alicia, that of Fidel – where the way ahead is unclear and where you restrict yourself to following old dance steps.
