FILM SCREENING | SOY CUBA
As part of its weekly Thursday Film Series, APKASS in collaboration with ASSA, PACSAA, IFRA (University of Ibadan) & LIBRA-TV in its fourth week presents SOY CUBA
Soy Cuba (I am Cuba) is an amazing Soviet/Cuban propaganda film from 1964, directed by Mikhail Kalazatov. It was made to celebrate the Cuban revolution. The Cubans didn’t like it because they thought it misrepresented their revolution (it did). The Soviets thought it made pre-Revolutionary decadence look rather too attractive (it did). So it remained virtually unseen for decades until its rediscovery in the 1900s by enthusiasts including Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.
