MEMORIAS DEL SUBDESARROLLO / MEMORIES OF UNDERDEVELOPMENT
Tomás Gutiérrez Alea Cuba, 1968, 35mm, B&W, 97 min.

Based on the reflections of novelist Edmundo Desnoes, this masterpiece of reason and irony is the story of a well-off writer who decides not to flee with his friends to the U.S. As a result, he is able to reflect upon the early days of post-revolutionary Cuba and the contradictions of bourgeois society.

Basada en las reflexiones del novelista Edmundo Desnoes, esta obra maestra de la razón y de la ironía cuenta la historia de un escritor que decide no huir con sus amigos a los E.E.U.U. Por eso, él puede reflejar sobre los días tempranos de la Cuba posrevolucionaria y las contradicciones de la sociedad bourguesa.
