Two good friends, an old Ural motorcycle, a Cuba never seen before. Here’s the first road movie ever shot in Cuba, by the Italian artist Desiderio. Riding an old Ural bike with sidecar, Desidero takes us through a crazy, dreamlike, adventurous travel that crosses the 15 Cuban regions, chasing small and unknown – and often surprising – arts and crafts activities. A world that is going to change and disappear forever.
Desiderio ( director, filmmaker, painter, illustrator, art director, dj ) winner of the Italian Factory Prize (Milan) for the new Italian painting in 2008, and twice finalist at the Premio Celeste in categories painting and then video, is already well known and established in the field for his trilogies of movie shorts Beauty Hazard (2007), ConfabulaSpurio (2008), I Love My Queen (2009) and for the last double short feature Bluesky (2011), presented at the 54 degree Biennale Di Venezia and They Win On The Sky (2012) at the XI Biennale de L’Habana and Biennale of Chile (2015). Numerous exposures in Italy and to the foreign countries. (Havana, Berlin, China, Paris).
