Solidarity Cinema – “Lucía” and “Now”

May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CDT

May 23, 7pm CST at solidaritycinema.com
Lucía (Humberto Solás,1968, 160m)
Now! (Santiago Álvarez, 1965, 5m)

A breathtaking vision of Cuban revolutionary history wrought with white-hot intensity, Humberto Solás’s operatic epic tells the story of a changing country through the eyes of three women, each named Lucía. In the 1890s, she is a tragic noblewoman who inadvertently betrays her country for love during the War of Independence. In the 1930s, she is the daughter of a bourgeois family drawn into the workers’ uprising against the dictatorship of Gerardo Machado. And in the post-revolutionary 1960s, she is a newlywed farm girl fighting the ongoing battle against patriarchal oppression. A formally dazzling landmark of postcolonial cinema, Lucía is both a sensually stunning experience and a fiercely feminist portrait of a society journeying toward liberation.
