UPCOMING REVIEW | I Am Cuba (Soy Cuba)
Ya Kuba, by Mikhail Kalatozov, 1964
Russian/Spanish, Black and White, 2 hours 21 minutes

"Isn't this a happy picture?
Don't avert your eyes, Look!
I am Cuba

For you I am the casino, the bar, the hotels and brothels
But the hands of these children and old people are also me
I am Cuba"
