I AM CUBA MARCH 22  MARCH 28 dir. Mikhail Kalatozov, Documentary, Not Rated, Cuba, Spanish with English subtitles, 1995, 143 min.
Written by Yevgeny Yevtushenko


Produced by Mosfilm and ICAIC, this film was started only a week after the Cuban missile crisis and was designed to be Cubas answer to both Sergei Eisensteins propaganda masterpiece, Potemkin and Jean-Luc Godards freewheeling romance, Breathless. But I Am Cuba turned out to be something quite unique  a wildly schizophrenic celebration of Communist iconography, mixing Slavic solemnity with Latin sensuality. The plot, or rather plots, feverishly explore the seductive, decadent (and marvelously photogenic) world of Batistas Cuba  deliriously juxtaposing images of rich Americans and bikini-clad beauties sipping cocktails poolside with scenes of ramshackle slums filled with hungry children and gaunt old people.
Using wide-angle lenses that distort and magnify and filters that transform palm trees into giant white feathers, cinematographer Sergei Urusevskys acrobatic camera achieves wild gravity-defying angles as it glides effortlessly through long continuous shots. But I Am Cuba is not just a catalog of bravura technique  it also succeeds in exploring the innermost feelings of the characters and their often desperate situations. Shown unsubtitled at the San Francisco International Film Festival, I Am Cuba received two standing ovations  during the screening. The first movie ever jointly presented by master filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, I Am Cuba is one of the great discoveries in cinema. It will change your view of cinema forever!

Milestone Films first released Mikhail Kalatozovs deliriously beautiful masterpiece, I Am Cuba in 1995. Now, decades later, we are delighted to have been able to create a brand new 4K restoration of the film from original 35mm fine grain masters we purchased so long ago. The newly restored I Am Cuba is even more ravishing and surreal  the improved visuals and the single-language soundtrack allow viewers to experience the films extraordinary cinematography, sound editing, and narrative power. Audiences will have no question why this film revolutionized filmmaking in the 1990s and beyond.
