Guardians of the Night sheds light on the people, activities, sites and ideas that occur on an everyday basis at night time in Eastern Cuba. Guardians of the Night is an experimental and sensorial short-length ethnographic film about the cyclical and spontaneous life activities that emerge at nighttime in Guantánamo, Cuba.
