Summary, etc.: "[I am Cuba], director Mikhail Kalatozov and cinematographer Sergei Urusevsky's hybrid offspring of Soviet orthodoxy and Cuban tropicalismo, is a film of dazzling contrasts. In four intertwining stories of the revolution, Urusevsky's acrobatic camera takes the viewer on a dizzying ride through smoky nightclubs and rooftop pool parties, rickety shantytowns and rustling sugarcane fields, student protest rallies and remote guerilla outposts."--Container.
In 'O mamute Siberiano, ' Vicente Ferraz documents the making of Soy Cuba, which was largely panned by Cubans, the Soviet Union and the West at its release, then nearly forgotten. Using new and archival footage and interviews, he also contrasts the Cuba shown in the film with the Cuba forty years later. Surviving members of the cast and crew are interviewed regarding the film's rediscovery and subsequent reclassification as a cinema masterpiece.
'A film about Mikhail Konstantinovich Kalatozov' is a "comprehensive documentary on this giant of Russian cinema."--Container.
