Unlike any film before or since, this paean to Cuba’s culture and its revolutionary spirit from Soviet master Mikhail Kalatozov (THE CRANES ARE FLYING) is perhaps the most visually striking black and white film ever made. Its technical innovation is nearly as impressive as the scope of its story. This is a Soviet propaganda film, to be sure. It is also a superior work of film art.
