Stoney Road Releasing ‘I Am Cuba’
11 Sep 2006 :
Stoney Road films have announced the Irish release of the film masterpiece ‘I Am Cuba’, opening at the IFI in Dublin and the Kino in Cork over the coming weeks.

‘I Am Cuba’ is described as “a whirling, feverish dance through the sensuous decadence of Batista’s Havana and the grinding poverty and oppression of the Cuban people, portrayed in dazzling images and haunting performances by mainly non-professional actors.”

Made shortly after the Cuban Revolution and the Missile Crisis, as a Soviet-Cuban co-production, the film was directed by Mikhail Kalatozov, best known for ‘The Cranes Are Flying’, which won him the Palme d’Or at Cannes. Co-writers were famous Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Cuban poet/novelist Enrique Pineda Barnet.

The film was rescued from obscurity and restored by Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola in 1990 and will be released in Dublin on the 21st of September and Cork on the 16th of October by Stoney Road Films.

Variety calls it “visually staggering… A newly discovered classic! Deliriously choreographed I Am Cuba is one gorgeous image after another.”
