Lara –a young filmmaker– finds herself in a no place between Cuba and Mozambique. Over an imagined balcony towards the Indian Ocean, Lara is searching for answers to the long silence of her father. She does feel the loneliness preceding the imminent demise of her father, Camilo. She begins to draw up paths that prevent her from the beginning of the end.
Lara SOUSA studied documentary at the EICTV (Cuba). Her short films have an essayistic and self-referential aesthetic. She combines her political vision with a poetic language, searching for a non-place between Mozambique and other realities. Lara’s movies have been selected for several festivals, including Dakar’s Biennale 2020. She was selected to ColabNowNow – British Council Digital Arts Residence as Southern Africa storyteller and recently selected to Berlinale Talent Campus and to Talent Campus DocStation. Her project Katalina, Kalunga, Karonga – Sea Waved Tales was the winner of Digital Lab Africa in the Digital Art Category.
