Grande Hotel

Once the most luxurious hotel of Mozambique, today an improvised shelter to more than 3500 people without water and electricity: this is Grande Hotel. Inside this ghost of the past lost dreams and idle hopes tie into a story about colonial megalomania, revolutionary vanity, and the illusion of a healthy global economy.
