This unusual documentary pixilation is based on images discovered in Cuban court archives. In the past, the Communist regime’s prying security forces surveilled not only the enemies of the regime, but also the activities of nonconformists, misfits and dissidents.

“The images stored in Cuba’s judicial archives contain the island’s most jealously guarded secret: an alternative history in which the nonconformists, the misfits and the dissidents are also part of it.”



Lucía Malandro (* 1990) and Daniel D. Saucedo (* 1994) are a creative duo from Latin America who research new forms of film narrative and apply them to their work using expressive experiments. They have made several short films that present unconventional stories and explore forms of representation.
