Cine Cuba is a monthly film club, generally held on the last Monday of the month (check for details) & organised by North London Cuba Solidarity Campaign (NLCSC), showing films from or about Cuba. We aim to show films which provide an insight into the Cuban Revolution and the society, politics, history and culture of Cuba. Where possible we invite guest speakers with a special interest in the film topic We hope that viewers will stay at the end of the film and participate in the relaxed post-film discussion. Entry is free but donations are welcome to cover our costs.

February 27th – Soy Cuba (1964) Mikhail Kalatozov.
Our second feature with a distinctly surreal feel. A Soviet/Cuban production, it is controversial in its portrayal of Cuba pre and post Revolution but a remarkable use of filmic techniques make for interesting viewing.
March 27th – Death of a Bureaucrat (1966) dir Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. To complete our taster season of the surreal in Cuban film is Alea’s wacky satire about how not to get buried in Cuba. Bureaucracy rules - Kafkaesque but funnier!
