Sundance celebrates EPICENTRO

Hubert Sauper, Austria's most adventurous and unpredictable documentarist and essayist, received the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for best Documentary at this year's Sundance festival for his film EPICENTRO.
Cuba is many things at once - a so called-time capsule, the very place where the New World was discovered, a romantic and a warning window into the American and world history. For Sauper Cuba is the Epicentro. Garnished with plenty of Cuban song and dance his film offers a rich and fascinating mix of La Habana, historic events, vérité footage and playful encounters with people from all walks of life - most of all a group of kids, who Sauper calls the little prophets.
