7 Days in Havana, an omnibus feature by directors Laurent Cantet, Benicio Del Toro, Julio Medem, Gaspar Noé, Elia Suleiman, Juan Carlos Tabío, and Pablo Trapero. Full synopsis can be read as follows (via Wild Bunch):

“A contemporary portrait of this eclectic, vital, unique city, told through a single feature-length movie made of 7 chapters, directed by 7 internationally acclaimed directors.

Each chapter depicts a day of the week through the extraordinary lives of its characters. A world away from the familiar clichés, the film aims to express the soul of Havana and its diversity in touching, entertaining and funny style. All seven stories have independent plots, but the connections between them create a powerful dramatic unity. Emblematic Havana landmarks form the backdrop to the chapters in which several characters appear more than once, organically connecting the narratives and demonstrating that in Havana all social spheres intersect.”
