Más Se Perdió (we lost more) structurally unites a series of historical and cultural references in contemporary Havana, Cuba. A variety of cinematographic approaches are used to explore the spaces of the derelict National School of Ballet, to document young athletes at an outdoor stadium, and to record a street scene with construction workers – the latter in reference to Chris Markers film Letter from Siberia (1957). Each place maintains some relationship to notions of utopia; however, the autonomous soundscape of the film is suggestive of underlying conflicts contained within these visions.
