80 DESTINATIONS (Co-production)
About the film

In the early 1990s, Alice de Andrade, a film student at EICTV, conducted a casting with 40 couples in Havana for a short doc, LUNA DE MIEL, which would show the surrealist socialist ritual of marriages in times of rationing. Two married couples were chosen as protagonists, but Alice never forgot about the others...

Between 1992 and 2015, she followed the trajectory of some of these couples in the feature documentary VINTE ANOS (2016), a portrait of the personal transformations of the characters and the socio-political-economic changes of Cuba. VINTE ANOS was awarded the Festival of Brasilia and selected for the festivals of São Paulo, Miami, Havana and Guadalajara.

80 DESTINATIONS derives from the short and the feature films, and follows the period from 1992 to 2018, and each episode unfolds the stories of these couples at a time when the world turns its eyes to Cuba.


80 Destinations is a series that will rediscover the couples filmed when they get married in Cuba in 1992, during the especial period in peace times, economic crises with implacable rationing that succeed in the end of Soviet Union and their economic trajectory.
