Viva Cuba collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection presents seven treasures of Cuban cinema, ranging from the classic films of the 'golden age' following the Revolution in 1959 and the foundation of the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry, to more recent and equally powerful works from the 1970s and 1980s. These remarkable films explore recurring themes of Cuban history and cultural identity in an approach that is always direct, innovative and vital. While acknowledging the influence of the European avant-garde, they forge a particularly Cuban style, dealing with subjects such as racial, sexual and class discrimination and oppressive family relationships. Although many films, particularly those made in the years immediately following the Revolution, aim to encourage activism, the shortcomings of the new society often receive sharply satirical treatment, with polemics eschewed in favour of a distinctly Cuban black humour."--Network DVD website
