Onironauta


Onironauta




CATALOGUE TEXT
Rambling through Havana, the Afro-Cuban poet Omar reflects on memories and farewells, patriotism and censorship, his mythical verses blending the past and the present. It is the portrait of a poet and of an isolated island state, recorded in seemingly timeless everyday observations in words and images, filmed on 16 mm stock.
