Wow! A 'must see' for serious film buffs
I hate to start a new topic, but I just want to encourage as many "serious" film fans as possible to see this film. (It's too bad it was not mentioned in the 2004 "Z Channel - A Magnificent Obsession" documentary which is a real treasure trove of clips of lesser known, but highly acclaimed films.)
I have heard of "Soy Cuba" off and on for a few years (at least twice it was mentioned in DVD audio commentaries of recent films) and finally got to see it just now. From the very start I was in awe of the incredible visual imagery that is seen in almost literally every shot. The camera movements at times are incredible, especially since this was about 10 years before the development of the modern Steadicam. (I think "Rocky" in 1975 was the first mainstream U.S. film to feature Steadicam use.) This is absoulutely what you would call a visual tour de force.
