About the Film

A portrait of Havana in the middle of the whirlwind of the post restoration of US-Cuba relations. An impasse of uncertainty and vertigo, a feeling of time standing still while future flies away.

Stories that could not happen anywhere else in the world, except in the Surrealist Republic of Cuba.

The title "Antes que llegue el ferry" (literally “Before the ferry arrives”) refers both to discontinuous continuity & as much as the sense of expectation and anxiety that that took over Cubans when it was announced in 2015 that after 50+ years, a ferry service would resume between U.S. and Cuba. Up-to-date, the first ferry is yet to arrive.
