Memorias del subdesarollo + Intro at HOME Manchester, Manchester 14 April 2018 Tickets from £5.50

Described by Derek Malcolm as “one of the best films ever made about the sceptical individual’s place in the march of history”, Memorias del subdesarollo is the story of Sergio, a young man from a wealthy middle class family who has stayed in post-revolutionary Cuba despite his family’s exile to the United States. Sergio is critical of his bourgeois family’s ideals but he does not fully agree with the Cuba he sees around him either and the film details his reflections and observations of a country undergoing major ideological change. Memorias del subdesarollo was created under Fidel Castro’s regime by director Tomas Gutierrez Alea and has been praised for its engaging cinematic sophistication. Today it is widely considered a landmark in world cinema.

Showing as part of HOME’s ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival this screening will be introduced by Prof Andy Willis, University of Salford & HOME’s Visiting Curator: Film.

Note: the intro will be BSL interpreted and the film includes English subtitles.
