Soy Cuba

Product Description

“Soy Cuba” (I am Cuba) was badly received in Cuba at the time of its original release (1964), and it was only thirty years later that it was rediscovered and appreciated for its transfixing story and innovative camerawork.

The film was financed by the Soviet government to promote international socialism so is supposedly a piece of propaganda to support the revolution. This is not to say that the film should be dismissed, as the four short stories about the suffering of the Cuban people are sincere and moving. Soy Cuba is both a piece of history from the Cuban revolution and a film worth watching for its own merits.
