Cláudia Alves Vasconcelos

Cuba/Portugal, Performance/Political Documentary, 2010
18 min, HD, Color
Spanish with English subtitles


A group of college students from the EICTV plan an art performance piece in which they will prohibit the entrance of tourists to a Havana square. The art performance is being performed to bring awareness of the injustices that Cubans go through when they are "blocked" from going to places where only foreigners are allowed. In this documentary, we see the meetings that they have to plan the art piece, the actual performance, and the afterthoughts. The students are from a film school and are planning on filming people's reactions. From beginning to end they all discuss together the purpose of the performance and its implications as a political work of art. Cláudia Alves and her work have been recognized by the Berlinale Talent Campus.
