After years of official restrictions on religious observance, Cuba today is experiencing a real religious revival.
Indeed, every year Cuba's most important parade pays homage to San Lazaro. For some, he is the healer saint, for others an African divinity.
On foot, on their knees, or rolling along on the ground, thousands of pilgrims live a night of frenzy and immoderation, giving themselves up to ecstasy and pain.
The Night of San Lazaro seeks neither to interpret nor analyze this religious event, but simply to observe and present its lyrical visuals of fervor and devotion, images which reveal the re-emerging interest in the divine in Cuba.
