Movie Info

Cuba (Agosto, 1994). The world of Carlos is collapsing. His little hometown is a chaos. His friends are leaving, his grandmother dies, he is exploring sexuality. He was hoping for a normal summer but his emotions are upside down while he tries to survive with an uncertain future when government politics change and thousands of Cubans are throwing themselves to the sea with the hope of escaping.

  • While the movie may serve as a dark reminder of this not-so-distant past, it's also a testament to the idea that life does not stop because of politics.

  • Capó beautifully captures the surrounding landscape of the island, in a manner that shows his attachment to it. There may not be a lot that occurs during the course of August, but sometimes it's in the silent moments that he manages to captivate.

  • This debut feature is indicative of a director with a skillful eye for composition and framing, and there is an added affection for these landscapes here, the sights of the director's own hometown.
