ABOUT THE FILM:

In English and Spanish with English subtitles. 

Director Mikhail Kalatozov’s delirious masterpiece uses four stunning vignettes to paint a picture of pre-revolutionary Cuba, its culture, and the people who call the island home. Produced by Mosfilm and ICAIC, shooting began only a week after the Cuban Missile Crisis and was poised to be the island nation’s response to both Sergei Eisenstein’s acclaimed propaganda piece (BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN) and Jean-Luc Godard’s recently acclaimed romance (BREATHLESS). Instead, I AM CUBA turned out to be a wildly offbeat celebration of Communist iconography, mixing Slavic solemnity with Latin sensuality in a combination that received two standing ovations at the San Francisco International Film Festival, as well as the first ever joint presentation from filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.
