Jordan Ressler First Feature Award

Director Tommaso Santambrogio will be in attendance to participate in a post-screening Q&A.

This screening is a part of the Spotlight on Cuba at Miami Film Festival, made possible with support of ArtesMiami

Italian-born director Tommaso Santambrogio opens a poignant new window into the allure, tragedy, hope, and human cost of exile from Cuba sixty-five years after the communist revolution. Shot in elegant, highly stylized black and white and focused on the frozen-in-time Cuban town of San Antonio De Los Baños, a series of stories unfold: Alex (Alexander Diego) and Edith (Edith Ibarra), young artists in love, perfect for each other—except, perhaps, in their plans for the future. An elderly peanut peddler (Milagros Llanes Martinez) revisiting the past through decades-old letters from her dead husband. A pair of little leaguers with New York Yankee dreams. All face the specter of separation while navigating a world they did not create.


Tommaso Santambrogio was born in 1992 in Italy. He lived and studied between Milan, Paris, Roma and La Havana and he worked with several international acclaimed directors, like Werner Herzog and Lav Diaz. He is known for L’Ultimo Spegne la Luce (2021), Gli Oceani Sono i Veri Continenti (2019) and Escena Final (2019).
