Los Sobrevivientes: Cuba, 1978, 130 minutes, color, 35mm. Starring Vicente Revuelta, Reynaldo Miravalles, Enrique Santiesteban, Ana Viña. A bourgeois Cuban family of aristocratic origin locks itself into its mansion when the Cuban Revolution comes to power, waiting for the new regime to be overthrown. As time passes, they regress to older and older systems of political order, from capitalism to feudalism to "primitive savagery." This dark comic classic, by one of Cuba's most acclaimed directors, was never released commercially in the United States.

The Havana Film Festival in New York is a project of the American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization building cultural bridges between the United States and Cuba through exchange programs in the arts.
