1964. Cuba/USSR. Dir: Mikhail Kalatozov. With Sergio Corrieri. 141 min.
Propaganda has never been so jaw-droppingly beautiful as in this Soviet-backed account of Cuban unrest. Feel free to jeer at Americans and join la revolucion – the four stories told here are certainly rousing enough – but the real star is the camera, which dances, glides, and spins its way into some sort of liberated/socialized ecstasy.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
