In the wake of the Communist revolution of 1959, Cuba experienced a cinematic golden age. Aided by the state-sponsored Cuban Film Institute (ICAIC), filmmakers unleashed a stream of formally radical works that crossed New Wave-inspired stylistic experimentation with politically charged subject matter. These vital transmissions from a country in transition are revolutionary in every sense of the word.

This series is presented as part of the Cuban Culture Festival New York, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba (AFLFC). Co-presented with the Havana Film Festival New York (HFFNY).
