A young documentary filmmaker in training leaves Brazil on her way to Cuba in search of a dream: to study cinema at one of the largest film schools in the world. Founded by the utopia of the eye and ear of Fernando Birri, Gabriel García Márquez and Fidel Castro, EICTV transformed a town 30 kilometers from Havana. But with the new coronavirus pandemic, the projects of more than a hundred students were stopped. The short film My name is nostalgia invites us to live the director's days of isolation and anguish in this place that has been the stage for films and projects and that has gained an air of sadness and uncertainty. For fourteen days, the film leads us to a universe of farewells and concerns from the eyes of those who see the dream being replaced by nostalgia.
