CineCuba – Documentaries and feature films from and about Cuba screened upstairs at The Calthorpe Arms, 252 Grays Inn Rd, WC1X 8JR. Last Monday of the month. Free entry, donations welcome.

Monday 28 October, 7.30pm: 'Interviews from Havana - Black people in Cuba' (Telesur) + ‘Por Primera Vez’ (ICIAC 1967). Two very different documentaries: the first on race in Cuba, the second a look at how in the early days of the Revolution, the travelling movie teams first brought films to the rural population. With Cuban journalist Cristina Escobar to discuss the issues raised in the films.

Monday 25 November, 7.30pm: ‘Memories of Underdevelopment’ (1968) dir.Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. A much-admired classic: Alea’s cinematic style was as radical as the times he chronicled. The film stands as a biting indictment of its protagonist’s disengagement and an extraordinary glimpse of life in post-Revolutionary Cuba.

Monday 27 January, 7.30pm: ‘Suite Habana’ (2003) dir. Fernando Perez. A tone-poem to the capital, following the daily lives of a diverse group of its residents. No narrative, no story-line, no dénouement. Just a group of Habaneros enjoying the trials, tribulations and pleasures of modern Havana.

Monday 24 February, 7.30pm: ‘Interviews from Havana - Finca Marta: greening agriculture in Cuba’ (2014/8) teleSUR. Three documentaries on one very successful experiment in ecoagronomy, the last farm Fidel visited before his death.
