I Am Cuba
I Am Cuba was actually shot as an elaborate pro-Castro piece of Soviet propaganda, but instead it's as if everyone in question just went gaga, drunk on the sheer beauty of Cuba and making up new film techniques as they went along. The film is a stylistically brilliant quartet of vignettes set during the waning years of the Batista regime. The interconnecting stories that propel the film along were written by Russian poet laureate Yevgeny Yevtushenko.
"...be the film find of the year, I Am Cuba was actually shot in 1964 as an elaborate pro-Castro..."
