Memories of Underdevelopment screening, Leeds

Wharf Chambers, 23-25 Wharf Street, Leeds, LS2 7EQ

Wednesday, 22 May 2024, 7:00pm


Directed by the master Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, MEMORIES is a complex character study of a man out of place. When a revolution transforms our society, demanding whole-hearted participation and commitment, what becomes of those who won't leave, but can't stay either? Like many of the great ICAIC films of the 1960s, Alea's masterpiece synthesises and subverts notions of didactic propaganda and aesthetic innovation into a distinctively Cuban cinema.

In addition to the feature film, we will be presenting some Cuban short films.

There will be a raffle and zines for sale - bring cash! All proceeds to the Cuba Vive medical appeal.

The screening room is wheelchair accessible. This is a social screening, so feel free to arrive late or leave early.

This event is open to anyone aged 18 or over, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you can afford it, please consider buying a higher priced ticket, but any amount of money, or even just your time and attention, is greatly appreciated.

Tickets price £8 / £5 available here
