Synopsis

Controverso is a musical journey about improvised poetry with the greatest figures of Spanish-speaking improvisation, introduced by Luna, a young woman interested in hip hop culture. One night he meets the Cuban improviser Alexis Díaz Pimienta who tells him about the troubadours of La Alpujarra and the repentistas of Cuba. Luna, with an Alpujarra mother and a Cuban grandmother, decides to investigate forms of improvisation that she was unaware of and embarks on a trip to discover the trovo that will take her to Cuba to connect freestyle with the oldest oral poetic tradition in the world.
