Más Se Perdió' (we lost more) structurally unites a series of historical and cultural references in contemporary Havana, Cuba.

Varying cinematographic approaches are used to explore the spaces of the derelict National School of Ballet, to document young athletes at an outdoor stadium, and to record a street scene with construction workers – the latter in reference to Chris Marker’s film Letter from Siberia (1957).

Each place maintains some relationship to notions of utopia, however the autonomous soundscape of the film is suggestive of underlying conflicts contained within these visions. The work is a joyous exercise in depiction and allusion.
