Cuba / 1968 / 97 minutes / DCP / B&W

A lovingly-restored monument of Latin American cinema, where the great Cuban filmmaker Tomás Gutiérrez Alea captured the consciousness of a critical moment in post-revolutionary Cuba. We enter this world through the fragmented memories, words and needs of the bourgeois Sergio who has stayed behind as others fled. He experiences – yet becomes alienated from – the people, changes and events around him, from the revolution through the Cuban missile crisis. The director’s powerful cinematic vision, weaving together documentary, fiction and even clips from porn, creates a complex portrait of a skeptical man grappling with a nation reinventing itself.
