7 Days in Havana is a snapshot of Havana in 2011: a contemporary portrait of this eclectic city, vital and forward-looking, told through a single feature-length movie made of 7 chapters, directed by 7 internationally acclaimed directors.
Omnibus films—features made up of shorts—now seem wholly the domain of odes to special cities, city symphonies in miniature and multiplied: Paris, Tokyo, New York. A set of directorial visionaries including Gaspar Noé, Elia Suleiman, and Pablo Trapero have here come to together to sing of Havana.
