A collaboration between Soviet Mosfilm and the newly established Cuban revolutionary government, Soy Cuba (1964) is among the most unique yet little-known films of the 20th century. Directed by Mikhail Kalatozov (The Cranes are Flying), the film is an alloy of poetry and visual passion, an aching love letter to revolutionary hopes as much as to the art of cinema itself. Soy Cuba braids together a tale of the revolution, arcing from Batista-era woes to open rebellion through a symphony of scenes, vignettes, poems, and breathtaking visual passages that all but reinvent the language of cinema. In Spanish and English with English subtitles. (35mm Presentation)
