Cuba, summer 1994. In the midst of Período Especial, one of the greatest crises in the country’s history, thousands of Cuban rafters try to reach the United States illegally, never sure if they’ll make it out alive. With holidays starting, Carlos plunges into a carefree August, wandering around with his friends and falling in love for the first time. Little does he know about the country’s uncertain future, until one by one, neighbors and friends leave in search of a better life, friendships break apart and families split up. In this hot summer, the world of Carlos will turn upside down.


Graduated from Cuba’s National School of Visual Arts. He later graduated in directing at Instituto Superior de ARTE and as documentary Film director at EICTV. La Marea was selected for the critics as one of the best Cuban Films in 2009. He was invited by the MOMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film and Media and the Wintherthur Film Festival to do a retrospective on his works.
