The Portico Gallery is proud to host FEAST Film’s Cuba Night…with Soy Cuba… in association with Mambista. Plus a DJ set from Gerry Lyseight of the popular Mambista night, photographic images of Cuba by Anna Hindocha and a selection of Cuban cocktails to accompany the film.
Made in 1964, Soy Cuba is a Soviet-Cuban production conceived as an epic cinematic poem using innovative techniques including breathtaking tracking shots created with rudimentary equipment. From the opening scene the hallucinogenic and visually stunning camerawork envelops the viewer in a tropical world on the brink of massive change. Through four different stories, the film shows the transition of the island from American oppression to socialist revolution. Removed from distribution in Cuba and Russia after only a week, Soy Cuba was virtually unknown until the 1990s when it was rediscovered and championed by Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.
8pm Doors open
8–8.45pm DJ Gerry Lyseight (Mambista)
8.45pm Soy Cuba (I am Cuba)
