Co-directed with her brother, the Duke University film maker Josh Gibson, Tempo of Tomorrow Revisited is a meditation on tourism and nostalgia in Cuba. Two American travelogues about Cuba intertwine—one shot in 1958 in the months before the Revolution and another in 2014, viewed from the same locations and camera angles. As these two travelogues merge, their narrations split apart, forcing an active relationship between sound and image, past and present. Two detached narrators, separated by fifty-seven years and by two distinct transitional moments in the history of Cuba, speculate on what tomorrow will bring.
