Candelaria

TIFF.17 - Supernova

Candelaria TIFF.17

Havana, 1994. Right when the embargo is at its peak, the Cold War comes to an end and the Soviet Union disintegrates. But the life of old Candelaria and Victor Hugo continues at a slow pace. The days are repetitive, conversations are sparse, dinners are sad. But the monotony is broken when Candelaria finds a video camera hidden in the dirty sheets of the hotel where she works. This camera, a foreign object to both of them, subtly sneaks into their lives as the couple learns to manipulate it and later to use it to film themselves dancing, kissing and making love.
