Speed Cinema Presents: I Am Cuba (Soy Cuba)

January 18 at 6:00 pm - 8:40 pm
Speed Cinema, 2035 South Third Street
Louisville, KY 40208 United States

I Am Cuba (Soy Cuba) Directed by Mikhail Kalatozov Production on this film started only a week after the Cuban missile crisis and was designed to be Cuba’s answer to both Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin and Jean-Luc Godard’s freewheeling romance, Breathless. Instead, I Am Cuba turned out to be something quite unique — a wildly schizophrenic celebration of Communist kitsch, mixing Slavic solemnity with Latin sensuality.

January 19 at 6:00 pm - 9:05 pm
Speed Cinema, 2035 South Third Street
Louisville, KY 40208 United States

Andrei Rublev Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky With his second feature, a towering epic that took him years to complete, Andrei Tarkovsky waded deep into the past and emerged with a visionary masterwork. Threading together several self-contained episodes, the filmmaker traces the renowned icon painter Andrei Rublev through the harsh realities of fifteenth-century Russian life, vividly conjuring the dark and otherworldly atmosphere of the age–a primitive hot-air balloon takes to the sky, snow falls inside an unfinished church, naked pagans celebrate…

Speed Cinema, 2035 South Third Street
Louisville, KY 40208 United States

Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft, and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family. This latest from Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda (Nobody Knows) begins with the mischief and intrigue of a heist film. But Shoplifters…

Media focused the nation’s attention on economic injustice and helped to lead to the declaration of the War on Poverty. However, the use of the striking images of poverty raised questions about whether media-makers with otherwise good intentions exploited and perpetuated long-held stereotypes…
