SOY CUBA

ICH BIN KUBA

Rarely shown in the United States, impossible to be seen in Cuba, and scorned in Russia as agit-prop kitsch, Soy Cuba was made in 1962 as an act of Soviet-Cuban friendship. Yevgeny Yevtushenko gets credit for the films poetic structure a loose series of choreographed tableaux. From first shot to last, a staggering visual experience comparable to Eisenstein and von Sternberg in its expressive, almost experimental, black and white cinematography. It is also deliriously one-of-a-kind movie, wildly schizophrenic in its bizarre mix of Slavic solemnity and Latin sensuality.
