The most Captivating Documentary I have ever seen!
25 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of screening this film at the Sundance Film Festival 2005 and was astounded. It is a truly captivating Documentary that not only follows the production of the monumental propaganda film "Soy Cuba" (I am Cuba) but also documents the dramatic economic changes that Cuba has faced since the 1960's when the film was made. Director Vincente Ferraz cleverly uses a mix of file footage and clips from "Soy Cuba", recent interviews with "Soy Cuba" filmmakers, and contrasting shots of locations from the film both now and then. It was highly entertaining and informative. If you are a Filmmaker, Film Student, or just an avid Film lover you must see this movie!
