In the maelstrom of Cuban politics, Memories of Underdevelopment is one film made in the island after the revolution that generations will be revisiting for years to come. A film very much of its time, Memories is redolent of the jaunty, black & white sensibility of the French Nouvelle Vague that was common currency among European filmmakers in the sixties. It chronicles the seriocomic misadventures of Sergio Carmona Mendoyo (Sergio Corrieri), an intellectual who is having issues reconciling himself to the social upheaval around him. The screening will celebrate the 50th anniversary 4K restoration of the film.
Alejandro Rios, host of the weekly television program La Mirada Indiscreta (The Indiscreet Gaze) will lead a discussion of the film with the audience. Tue, FEB 27, 2018, 7 PM
