Cinema Revolution: Cuba

(Cine de la revolución: Cuba)

“After the revolution, everybody (and I mean everybody) thought that our island could be transformed.”
—Filmmaker Tomás Gutiérrez Alea

In the 1960s, groundbreaking Cuban filmmakers found their own aesthetics, pushing beyond the influences of Europe and Hollywood while gaining international recognition. These selected classics celebrate how they redefined memories, decolonized culture, and illuminated Cuba’s revolutionary dreams. All films in Spanish with English subtitles.

Unless otherwise noted, tickets are $10 ($8 Walker members, students, and seniors).

Presented in conjunction with Adiós Utopia. Visit the Bentson Mediatheque and check out the Cuban Playlist for additional programs complementing the exhibition during the month of February.
