Soy Cuba will be screened from a nearly pristine 35mm print.
This astonishing and underrated film is blessed with some of the most extraordinary camerawork in film history. Ostensibly Communist propaganda, the film celebrates the progress achieved by the Cuban Revolution and dramatises four examples of injustice to the common man in pre-Revolutionary Cuba. The link that holds the film together is a spoken monologue beginning each sequence with the words "Soy Cuba".
Soy Cuba is still pushing the boundaries of pure cinema; a stirring and unforgettable experience.
I Am Cuba (Soy Cuba), dir. Mikhail Kalatozov, Soviet Union/Cuba 1964, 141 mins.
Please note that a three minute short film will be screened before the first main feature every evening. Part of a rotating selection that changes weekly, the films shown are currently on tour to various arts venues across the country as part of Playback
