Solidarity Cinema – “Cuba Si!” and “De cierta manera”

May 21 @ 7:00 pm CDT

May 21, 7pm CST at solidaritycinema.com
Cuba Si! (Chris Marker, 1961, 51m)
De cierta manera (Sara Gómez, 1974, 78m)

[Cuba Si!]’s importance at the time was so obvious, and it remains the best and most intimate film on the making of a revolution. Marker’s preface to the script is illuminating. “Shot rapidly in January 1961,” it reads, “during the first alert period (you know, at the time when the majority of French papers were hooting over Fidel’s paranoia in imagining himself threatened with invasion), it aims at communicating, if not the experience, at least the vibrations, the rhythm of a revolution that will one day perhaps be held to be the decisive moment of a whole era of contemporary history.” —The Guardian
