The Knight of Paris

By focusing on a famous popular character in Havana, this film offers a poetic portrait of the last 50 years of Cuban history: from the “good old days” of the revolution, to the recent contradictory semi-capitalist regime and the melancholic end of an era. For some people, the present represents the end of a dream, for others it’s just the beginning.
