The 39th Portland International Film Festival: THE PROJECT OF THE CENTURY

Project of the Century copy

The Electro-Nuclear City was once part of an ambitious Soviet/Cuban venture to build the first nuclear power station the Caribbean. But the fall of the Soviet Union brought the project to a halt, leaving dismal blocks of worker’s apartments in the shadow of reminding enormous dome towers. Drifting effortlessly between raw psychological realism and dreamy surrealism and loaded with unique Cuban archive footage, Quintela portrays three generations of Cubans left to carry on waiting for “the project of the century.” (100 mins.)

The 39th Portland International Film Festival is sponsored by the James F. & Marion L. Miller Foundation, Delta Airlines, LAIKA, Willamette Week, Regal Entertainment Group, Travel Portland, Umpqua Bank, The Autzen Foundation, Amtrak Cascades, The Lamb-Baldwin Foundation, Hotel deLuxe, Hotel Eastund, Voodoo Doughnut, TV5Monde, and many others.
