In Absentia

Directed by Tareq Daoud
Switzerland / Cuba / 2011 / 42'

At La Ranchería, in the province of Guantanamo, lives a small community of descendants from the Native Americans exterminated by the Spanish colonists. The bond with the land, with ancestors and with the traditions is daily maintained with awareness of the curious gaze of external people. In Absentia analyses the broader question of survival of a culture, and the meaning of traditions in everyday life.
