Faces, sounds and voices from Havana. Off-screen and with complete honesty, Cubans tell us about their idea of freedom. "It is a lie I have repeated so often, I have started to believe it: I am
free." They are very well aware of the restrictions placed on them as human beings: "I can do whatever I want, but only within a clearly defined context, place and time." Public enemy number one is
Yoani Sánchez, a female blogger who exposes the nature of the system in her articles. Her aim with her blog, Generación Y, is to overcome her apathy and silence. "Freedom is the freedom to scream in
public that you are not free," she says. Many desperate Cubans have braved the hazardous crossing to the United States. But in the words of poet Konstantinos P. Kavafis you will always be walking the
streets of Havana wherever you go - you can't shake off the past. The peaceful, beautifully framed street scenes and exceptional soundtrack supplement the stories told in this production by
Baden-Württemberg Film Academy student Andrea Roggon. The people shown in the film are not those speaking. We watch them as they get crammed onto the bus, or wash their hair. We see puddles on the
street, rolling waves, like mirrors.
