Complete announcement, downloadable brochure and flyer here: http://sites.google.com/a/minnesotacubacommittee.org/www/cuban-movie-festival-2010 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, March 4–April 8 St. Anthony Main Theatre, 115 Main Street, SE, Minneapolis Free parking in ramp at 2nd Street SE and 2nd Avenue SE Admission: $6; 4 for $20 All movies are in Spanish with English subtitles *Clandestinos (Living Dangerously) by Fernando Perez* Satisfying as both a political thriller and a love story, this feature film by Fernando Pérez is so naturally realized that it avoids being didactic even as it commemorates events of the Cuban Revolution. Anti-Batista activists move from one safe house to another, trying to elude a relentless police commissioner. Their leader (Luis Alberto García), hardened by prison and torture, is suspicious of nearly everyone but gradually falls for his newest recruit, a headstrong idealist (Isabel Santos of El Benny). The climactic rooftop chase is well choreographed and edited, and Edesio Alejandro’s surging score recalls early Isaac Hayes. 103 minutes. General audience discussion of film after screening with U of M Political Science Professor August Nimtz, who is currently researching material for a documentary film on the subject of the urban front of the Cuban Revolution. Pracna on Main, next to the theater. * * ________________________________ For more information about the Minnesota Cuba Committee and meeting times: www.minnesotacubacommittee.org
