Saul Landau Film Series: The Uncompromising Revolution (1988), Wednesday 6pm

This Landau film for the month of September looks at Fidel Castro’s nationalist revolution, 30 years after power was seized.

There’s something oddly fascinating about “The Uncompromising Revolution (1988)”, that looks at current-day, 30 years after Fidel Castro’s nationalist revolution. It shows the people, landscapes, large and small themes, to show the texture of Cuba after three decades of revolution. Weaving together archive footage, occasional flashbacks from earlier Landau pictures, recent personal interviews with Castro and scores of on-the-street and on-location interviews with women, professionals and workers. Landau tries to capture filmically what political scientists have tried to do empirically, that is, to understand Cuba 30 years after the revolution.
