May 20 – Soy Cuba

An astonishing and rarely screened film blessed with some of the most extraordinary camerawork in film history. Ostensibly this is Communist propaganda, celebrating the progress achieved by the Cuban Revolution and dramatising four examples of injustice to the common man in pre-Revolutionary Cuba. It’s still pushing the boundaries of pure cinema – a stirring and unforgettable experience.

“Communist agitprop’s most unrestrained diva hymn and one of the most visually titanic works in the century of movies.”
The Village Voice

£2 entry to film

Film starts at 7.45 and will be followed by discussions and drinks.

The film will be introduced by Mark Burton of Cuba Solidarity Campaign Manchester and Parvathi Kumaraswami, Lecturer in Latin American Cultural Studies at the University of Manchester.
