Havana Film Festival New York
Apr 7 — Apr 8, 2018
The Museum will host two days of film screenings as part of this year’s Havana Film Festival New York. The Cuban classics A Cuban Fight Against Demons and The Survivors will be presented as part of the program “Restoring Titon.” These films have been restored by the Academy Film Archive and the Cinemateca de Cuba on the occasion of the 90th birthday of the great director Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. The Festival will also showcase Tie Your Plow to a Star, as part of a tribute to the late Argentine filmmaker Fernando Birri who is widely considered the father of New Latin American Cinema, and the Brazilian documentary about Havana’s famous caberet O Gato de Havana.
