MEMORIAS DEL SUBDESARROLLO
Cuba | 1968 | Tomás Gutiérrez Alea
The first feature film from Castro’s Cuba to be widely acclaimed and seen in the U.S. is now five decades old. Memories of Underdevelopment focuses on an affluent Cuban intellectual and writer who stays behind in Havana after his wife, family, and friends escape to Miami in the wake of the Bay of Pigs invasion. Alienated from Cuba’s revolution, but fascinated by the changes and recent historical events he is witnessing, he spends his time observing and pondering his “underdeveloped” country—and also pursuing girls. (Gutiérrez Alea co-directed the Oscar-nominated Strawberry and Chocolate 25 years later.) Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 98 min.
