That Same
Old Station

An essay about memory and nostalgia

originated from radio waves.

Documentary  •  21 minutes  •  2021, Brazil and Cuba

Luiz goes back to Cuba and records the sounds

of the island with an old sound recorder.

On a magnetic band, he builds memories and affections in a place where the recent arrival

of the Internet coexists with old amateur

radio operators.

"That Same Old Station focuses on the sound landscape as the driving force of memories and affections. The idea is superb: in a digital age where seeing and listening are first and foremost, experiencing the analog culture is like visiting a foreign country."

André Dib for Curta Taquary
