Soy Cuba (I Am Cuba)

I AM CUBA  is one of the landmarks of world cinema, first revealed to American audiences 30 years after its production. Soviet director Mikhail Kalatozov set out to create a Cuban film as powerful as Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin, a rallying point for a nascent revolution. With a script by the Soviet Union's internationally famed poet Yevgeni Yevtushenko and Cuban author Enrique Pineda Barnet, the film was created as propaganda in order to promote international socialism, but upon its completion it was criticized by the Cubans for being too stereotypical in its depiction of the island and by the Soviets as being too sympathetic to Pre-Castro Cuba.
