François Ollivier – LA VIDA CONTINUA

“It’s Christmas but Cuba doesn’t care.”

“It’s Christmas but Cuba doesn’t care.
It’s like nothing can disturb the stream of daily activities or the sound of the waves. But behind the quiet normality of existence, the extraordinary beauty of things, there’s something else. It’s my third trip here and I heard the same story dozens of times : Cubans feel stuck, unable to move forward, like trapped in a natural paradise. This is what La Vida Continua is about. Actions, humans and things are frozen but well alive because while people are patiently waiting for some change, life goes on.”
