Looking for El Santo. A Journey to find the locations where the first two El Santo films were shot in Havana, Cuba
By Viviana Garcia-Besné and Peter Conheim

  • Looking for El Santo30:31

The granddaughter of original El Santo producer Jorge Garcia-Besné and the archivist behind the restoration of the first two El Santo pictures travel to Havana, Cuba, to clandestinely visit the locations where the original films were made, and granddaughter Viviana realizes the trip was as much of a journey to chart her family evolution as of historical cinema exercise. Filmed almost entirely on iPhones to avoid drawing the attention of the authorities, it is also a brief portrait of a resilient population faced with a daily struggle to feed themselves under a severe embargo from the West.
