I Am Cuba – Presented by Martin Scorsese + Francis Ford Coppola
“One of the most deliriously beautiful films ever made.” — Manohla Dargis, NY Times
The Texas Theatre is proud to present the brand-new 4K digital restoration of Mikhail Kalatozov’s I Am Cuba mastered from an original Russian 35mm fine grain that premiered at the 2018 New York Film Festival!
“Some of the most exhilarating camera movements and most luscious black-and-white cinematography you’ll ever see!”
— Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
“Here is proof — if any is needed — of the immense power of motion pictures, and especially of cinematography; proof that an inspired work can transcend ideologies and stand on its own as a work of art.”
— American Cinematographer
“I Am Cuba is a cinephile’s wet dream, a collage of Herculean feats of technical wizardry that would be easy to dismiss if it wasn’t so humane.… The film may or may not have changed the political face of the world, but in the way image and sound conspire to lay down the foundation for a new way of aesthetic thinking, it was at least geared to permanently change the way movies were made. Given its recent resurgence, its dream of a cinematic future may just come to true.” — Ed Gonzalez, Slant
