"I am Cuba" Soy Cuba is a 1964 Soviet Cuban film directed by Mikhail Kalatozov Hidden away in the Soviet archives for three decades, "I Am Cuba" is a wild celebration of Communist kitsch, mixing Slavic solemnity with Latin sensuality — a whirling, feverish dance through both the sensuous decadence of pre-revolutionary Havana and the grinding poverty and oppression of the Cuban people. In four stories of the revolution, the camera takes the viewer on a rapturous roller-coaster ride of bathing beauties, landless peasants, fascist police, and student revolutionaries.
