Hubert Sauper

Aug 30, 2020

Epicentro, the latest film from Academy Award–nominated director Hubert Sauper (Darwin’s Nightmare) offers a typically complex and frankly bracing consideration of the past, present, future, and mythology of Cuba.

In this online dialogue, timed to Kino Lorber’s theatrical release of Epicentro, Eric Hynes, Curator of Film at Museum of the Moving Image, talks to Sauper about the making of the film and his distinctive approach to collaboration and self-interrogation in nonfiction filmmaking.


Discussions with creative figures in film, television, and digital media—formerly the Pinewood Dialogues—made possible with a generous grant from the Pannonia Foundation.
