Synopsis: “lockdown 2 lockdown” quietly captures the bizarre atmosphere at a Cuban tourist resort during an emergency lockdown. Shot in September 2017, as Hurricane Irma struck the island, the film quietly studies the hotel grounds and its temporary occupants. What at first appears to be a sketch of a place, a vignette of disaster, surreptitiously develops into a subliminal and timely reflection on Western feelings of entitlement and how those shape our approach to the circumstances we face - then and now.
