The Man from Maisinicu
Dir: Manuel Perez 1973.
1964 - Alberto Delgado, administrator of the Maisinicu farm is found, dead. What happened to him and who was he really? Based on a true story this b&w film is atmospheric, a tale of mystery and intense violence telling us much about conditions following the Revolution.
Cine Cuba is a monthly film club, generally held on the last Monday of the month (no film in December) & organised by North London Cuba Solidarity Campaign (NLCSC), showing films from or about Cuba. We aim to show films which provide an insight into the Cuban Revolution and the society, politics, history and culture of Cuba. Where possible we invite guest speakers with a special interest in the film topic.
We hope that viewers will stay at the end of the film and participate in the relaxed post-film discussion. Entry is free (with a requested donation to cover costs).
If you would like to know more about the NLCSC please email us on: email@example.com
