Short Shadows: Memories of Underdevelopment

When: Wed., Sept. 4, 7 p.m. 2019
A double bill of iconic films produced in 1960s Havana. Salud les Cubains (1963) by Agnès Varda and Memories of Underdevelopment (1968) by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea both take a documentary approach in capturing Havana and its inhabitants, while producing starkly divergent fictions. The first is a joyful journalistic photo-montage shot through the lens of a master of the French experimental tradition, and the second is a feature film that firmly takes its cues form a Cuban revolutionary tactic of "imperfect cinema".
