Filmed by great Russian director Mikhail Kalatozov during 1963-4, I am Cuba (or Soy Cuba) is an epic poem to Communist Kitsch - a dramatic journey through the decadence of Batista`s Havana and the grinding poverty and oppression of the Cuban people. In the four stories showing the rise of the revolution, Kalatozov`s astonishing, acrobatic and groundbreaking camera work takes the viewer on a sweeping ride encompassing bathing beauties, landless peasants and student revolutionaries.
