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.

Monday 30 October 7.30pm: ‘The life of Che Guevara’ (1996) Dir. Teresita Gomez. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of his death, the film narrates the life of Che using little-seen footage and based on the book by the Italian journalist Liliana Bucellini.

Monday 27 November 7.30pm: ‘Viva Ciba’ (2006, Dir Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti). Prizewinning, thoughtful feature about two youngsters whose parents’ decisions threaten to make them unhappy. They take to the road to try to sort the adults out and we see some of lesser known Cuba through their eyes.

Monday 29 January 2018 7.30pm: ‘To Dance Like A Man’ (2012, dir Sylvie Collier) The tale of 3 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 film.

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.
