"Patria o Muerte" navigates the last years of Cuban and Venezuelan revolutions in decline without fear of clichés because it deepens with a search installed in the ambiguity through diptychs: what is left? what survives? what is remembered? how is the present memory of a political, economic and social transformation in process? who can replace their historical leaders? what could happen next?
The project is structured through symbols and metaphors that represent actual Socialism; the remembrance of Communism; the utopia of the "new man" Cuban revolution and how it has been replicated in Venezuela. It also shows dependency on; the love-hate relationship to Capitalism; and their struggle against embargo and isolation, which continues to bring poverty and difficulties in quite a lot aspects of life, infrastructure and commodities. Also presents a view on corruption, use of power and military absolutism, lack of freedom of speech and fear to express feelings.
