Program curated by Mary Pena and co-presented with Cinema Lamont.

Through a range of differing and subjective perspectives on the complexities of
present-day Cuba, a group of documentary filmmakers from the renowned
International School of Film and Television (EICTV), craft multiple narratives in
collaboration with local production crews and one another. Made within the
confines of a specific geographical and temporal frame, the shorts series Based in
Havana, marries visions of the outsider looking in with those of the insider looking
out, creating nuanced views of contemporary realities, often cast one
dimensionally. Myriad tensions ripple across hastily-built relationships, varied
perceptions, social, political and historical allegiances—producing multi-layered
explorations of representation, the ephemerality of truth, and the strengths and
limitations of the documentary form.
