Viva Matanzas

Director: Dick Verdult

A "choreography of catastrophe", centered on a naval battle that took place in 1628 (Cuba) between the Dutch and the Spaniards, a remarkable event the Dutch call the battle of the Zilvervloot: nobody died! But still, it was instrumental in the liberation from the Spaniards on two continents. A Spanish village commemorates this in a very peculiar manner.
Viva Matanzas is directed by the Neil Armstrong of Popular Distortion, Dick Verdult a.k.a. Dick El Demasiado.

This film is part of a combined programme with: Studies at Huningue / Basel or the tree to sleep. These are two refreshingly experimental films, perfect to get completely immersed into the screen in an almost ‘’other-worldly’’ experience.
