24-02-2019 12:00:00 24-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York City Symphonies: Suite Habana | 4:45 pm A poetic homage to the city of Havana, this breathtaking film is a lovely and melancholic portrait of Cuba's capital. Following in the tradition of the city symphony by adopting a "day-in-the-life-of" structure, it follows ten ordinary Habaneros as they go about their daily routine. There is no dialogue and no need for it either; music and natural sound accompany the multiplicity of images that weave a unique and intimate picture of a city full of contradictions and contrasts, a city of accomplished and frustrated dreams. Edited like a musical composition, SUITE HABANA oscillates between documentary and fiction. The ten characters range in age from 10 to 97, and represent the diversity of groups that form the city's social fabric. Each of them follows a narrative, and we follow their transformations as the workday ends and they prepare themselves to welcome the night. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=350268 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
