I AM CUBA (SOY CUBA), an astonishing and underrated film has some of the most extraordinary camerawork in film history. Ostensibly this is Communist propaganda, celebrating the progress achieved by the Cuban Revolution and dramatizing four examples of injustice to the common man in pre-Revolutionary Cuba. The link that holds the film together is a spoken monologue beginning each sequence with the words 'Soy Cuba'. It's still pushing the boundaries of pure cinema, a stirring and unforgettable experience.
The new print of Soy Cuba is the English-subtitled, full Spanish language version, previously unreleased in the UK.
