Hotel Nueva Isla Irene Gutiérrez Torres, Javier Labrador Deulofeu, José A. Alayón, Claudia Calviño 2014 | Cuba, Spain | Spanish |
| Feature Documentary

The formerly luxurious Hotel Nueva Isla in Old Havana is now in ruins, but it is home to people living on the fringes of society, like the retired public servant Jorge. Abandoned by his wife and children, Jorge’s only motivation, like a Don Quixote forgotten and gone astray, is to continue a quest he’s followed for years: dig among the dangerous ruins of the hotel, where he is convinced that the former owners hid valuable objects before fleeing the Cuban Revolution.

Produced by : José A. Alayón, Claudia Calviño
