“[I Am Cuba does] all these technical things, but what you feel is the joy of them experimenting and inventing as they go along.” – Paul Thomas Anderson, 2018
The Downtown Independent is proud and honored to welcome Milestone’s brand new 4K restoration of I AM CUBA/Я – Куба / SOY CUBA (Mikhail Kalatozov, 1964) to our theater from April 14th-21st
Taken from the original 35mm fine grain masters, expect to see an even more glorious film laid before you upon the screen (if that was possible with this this movie!!).
This is a restoration that should NOT BE MISSED on a big screen.
The team at Milestone released the original I AM CUBA to an excellent response in 1995. Since then, film restoration technology has changed, improved and was finally ready to properly work with this unparalleled Mikhail Kalatozov classic.
A cinematic cocktail that examines Cuban and Communist cultures, class systems, relationships, and humanity, through sound, visual structure and storytelling. I AM CUBA can be shaken, sipped, stirred- your choice- any style is delicious.
Come revel in the sensuality, deliberate beauty and excitement of this fab 4K restoration of I AM CUBA.
