Documentary Fortnight (Feb 13 – 28, 2015): http://bit.ly/1LfavqN
In the early twentieth century, the “Hotel Nueva Isla” used to be an emblematic luxury hotel, which after the Cuban Revolution was conﬁscated by the State and become a shelter for homeless people. Located in a neighborhood in Old Havana, today it has become imposing ruins of particular instability. The building has become increasingly difficult to live in, a shelter for people living on the margins of society. Jorge is a retired clerk, one of the few that remain there, a taciturn and mysterious character mostly accompanied by his dog. But as the neighbors go marching to safer places, Jorge keeps clinging to his roots.
