A Soviet production started a week after the Cuban missile crisis, I AM CUBA was designed to be Cuba’s answer to both Sergei Eisenstein’s POTEMKIN, and Jean-Luc Godard’s BREATHLESS. But the film turned out to be something quite unique — a wildly schizophrenic celebration of Communist kitsch, mixing Slavic solemnity with Latin sensuality.
The debut feature by the great Andrei Tarkovsky is a poetic journey through the shards and shadows of one boy’s war-ravaged youth.
A cinematic essay in defense of remembering, THE ROYAL ROAD offers up a primer on Junipero Serra’s Spanish colonization of California and the Mexican American War alongside intimate reflections on nostalgia, the pursuit of unavailable women, butch identity and Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, all against a contemplative backdrop of 16mm urban California landscapes. Director Jenni Olson in person! FREE to Amherst Cinema Members.
