In Everyone’s Eyes (en todas las miradas)
2013 / Cuba / 6 Minutes / Lloyd Frost
A poetic and slyly subversive musical film about Cuba – where any dissent is ‘counter-revolutionary’ and can have dire consequences.
Most Cubans learn to show outward happiness and acceptance to hide their despair, fear and paranoia – it’s safer.
In precisely the same way, a happy melody dances through this film while a smiling singer reveals what he truly sees on the colorful, crumbling island.
The motif of metal bars – at homes and in the derelict Modelo Prison – more than hint at how Cuba has been a prison against free speech and human rights for generations.
Filmed entirely in Cuba/Filmada enteramente en Cuba.
