Runtime: 141 mins

Genre: Drama

I Am Cuba is an anti-American propaganda film, made as a Cuban-Soviet co-production, that has been snatched from oblivion, restored, and released in the United States as a presentation of Martin Scorsese and Francis Coppola. Since the film's prediction of a brave new world under Fidel Castro has not resulted in a utopia for Cubans, who suffer under one of the world's most dismal bureaucracies, the film today seems naive and dated - but fascinating.

This screening will begin with a short 10-15 minute introduction from the Liverpool Architectural Society, and is part of a series:

Tue 21 Sep, 18:30: Man With Movie Camera

Tue 12 Oct, 18:30: I Am Cuba

Tue 2 Nov, 18:30: Don't Look Now

This screening is part of our Community Cinema. If you're an artist, independent filmmaker, charity, film club, or arts organisation, find out how FACT can support your film screening.

The Liverpool Architectural Society was founded in 1848, making it one of the oldest architectural societies in the world. Remaining independent for almost 140 years, in 1987 it merged with the Merseyside branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Whilst most of its members are chartered architects, the society also welcomes people who have an interest in architecture to join. Events, such as visits to local buildings, lectures and seminars are organised throughout the year; and traditionally there’s a weekend away to look at buildings in a major European city.
