FILM NIGHT: Yo Soy Cuba (1964) - Monday, March 12th @ 6pm

On Monday, March 12th, at 6pm in the Rosenthal Lecture Room at the Foundation’s offices, the film Yo Soy Cuba (1964) will be presented in conjunction with Michael Dweck’s lecture on Habana Libre which is set for March 14th.

A documentary of early 1960s Cuba and its culture, Yo Soy Cuba (1964) was long held back from American audiences until Martin Scorsese began a campaign to restore the film in the early 1990s. Originally intended as a piece of communist propaganda, it was banned by the USSR and Cuba for its too loving view of the bourgeois pre-Fidel classes and Havana high-life, best exhibited in the film’s narration of “I am Cuba, the Cuba of the casinos and the people.”

To see a trailer for Yo Soy Cuba (1964), follow this link:

The showing will begin at 6pm and end at 8:30pm.

The showing will be held in Rosenthal Lecture Room at the Preservation Foundation’s offices located at 311 Peruvian Avenue in Palm Beach.

Please note, doors lock at 6:15pm.

The Foundation’s Executive Director Alexander C. Ives will present a short introduction to the film.

Refreshments will be provided.

The film showing is FREE to all.  However, only reserved seating is available.  Those who wish to attend must call 561.832.0731 to reserve a seat.

As with all events, the Foundation expects attendees to act respectfully.  We reserve the right to turn away anyone.

"In today’s materialistic world there is a risk of people becoming slaves to money, as though they were simply cogs in a huge money-making machine. This does nothing for human dignity, freedom, and genuine well-being. Wealth should serve humanity, and not the other way around."
