VIVA CUBA LIBRE
a documentary by Matthias Lintner
Something is happening in Cuba. There’s a movement fuelled by artists and intellectuals who no longer want to play by the rules. Meanwhile, Samuel, an exiled Cuban living in Italy, is no longer satisfied with his online activism and is looking for ways to finally contribute to the salvation of the troubled island.
Filmmaker Matthias Lintner decides to accompany Samuel on the adventurous road there. In the process, his own communist aspirations are put to the test. The more Matthias gets to know his protagonist, the more it seems that the (new) Cuban revolution is happening right from his living room in the Italian Alps. Together they embark on a journey with an uncertain outcome, falling in love along the way.
