Using some (?many) of the thousands of photos Agnes took during a visit to Cuba in spring 1963. A celebration of the post-revolution culture and life in Cuba.

Another (early) tour-de-force by Varda. With voiceover by Agnes and Michel Piccoli providing context for what we see. A montage of still, B&W, photos arranged into chapters with different themes.
Some excellent music/dance scenes using photos which must have been shot with a motor drive to create a near stop-frame effect in time with the music. One of these was a bit overlong as she had to repeat the same sequence of photos several times - but a very interesting technique.
Fascinating as a snapshot of Cuba emerging as a country from the revolution.
