HOTEL NUEVA ISLA

DIRECTOR: IRENE GUTIÉRREZ, JAVIER LABRADOR - CUBA

The formerly luxurious Hotel Nueva Isla in Old Havana is now in ruins, but it is home to people living on the fringes of society, like the retired public servant Jorge. Abandoned by his wife and children, Jorge’s only motivation, like a Don Quixote forgotten and gone astray, is to continue a quest he’s followed for years: dig among the dangerous ruins of the hotel, where he is convinced that the former owners hid valuable objects before fleeing the Cuban Revolution. With a keen eye that is both highly stylized and intimate, Gutiérrez captures Jorge’s life spent doing rudimentary “maintenance” on a building haunted by faded glory and knowing that with the demolition of the hotel will come the end of an era.
