SOY CUBA (I AM CUBA)
1964. Cuba/USSR. Dir: Mikhail Kalatazov. With Sergio Corrieri, Salvador Wood. 141 min.
This gorgeous Soviet-commissioned propaganda tells four stories of pre-revolutionary Cuba and its people. Khrushchev may not have liked it much, but cinephiles delight in its powerful imagery and virtuosic tracking shots – including the direct inspiration for the BOOGIE NIGHTS pool scene.
