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.

To Dance like a Man (2012) dir. Sylvie Collier. The tale of three young boys, identical triplets, who all aspire to dance in the National Ballet of Cuba. The importance given to dance in Cuba and the gender balance are clear messages from this charming film.

Monday 26 February

Maestra (2012) dir. Catherine Murphy. The 1961 Cuban Literacy Campaign dramatically changed Cuba’s literacy levels in one year, organizing over 100,000 volunteers - over half of who were women - to teach in the rural areas of the country. This is the uplifting story of nine of these women.

Monday 26 March

Guantanamera (1995) dir. Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Juan Carlos Tabío. Another of the wonderful satires at which both directors excel. A funeral procession across the country induces unexpected emotions and consequences. Plus some wonderful music into the bargain!

Venue: upstairs at The Calthorpe Arms, 252 Grays Inn Rd, WC1X 8JR. With invited speakers, showing feature films and documentaries from or about Cuba.

Free entry but donations welcome. For info contact northlondoncsc@gmail.com

Cuban feature film. A growing group of people waiting for the infrequent bus service get to know one another better than they intend. Comedy and romance abound and the ineffable Cuban spirit of getting by and making the most of things is celebrated in this charming film.
