Grand Jury Award - Best Music Video
                        Awareness Film Festival 2016

 Is there a key to talking about armed conflict and terrorism attacks? From naiveté to awareness, a man looks at armed conflicts and two terrorism attacks: the killing of Cpl Nathan Cirillo while standing guard at Canada's National War Memorial in October 2014 and the Charlie Hebdo attack three months later. Lloyd's second project was filmed in France and Canada.

A poetic and slyly subversive musical short film about Cuba - where it's dangerous to speak openly against la Revolución.

Synopsis: On the island of Cuba, dissent is 'counter-Revolutionary'. It can lead to work restrictions, beatings, detention and prison.

Most Cubans learn to show an outward facade of happiness and even acceptance of the State's control over their lives...it's safer.  In the same way, the facade of a happy melody dances through this film, while a singer reveals what he truly sees on the colorful, crumbling island.

Metal bars are a recurring motif, at homes and the derelict Modelo Prison on the isolated Isle of Youth. Cubans sometimes call their country an 'open prison'. Some would say that Cuba has been a prison of one type or another, for generations.

Filmada enteramente en Cuba/Filmed entirely in Cuba.
