*2nd Annual Minnesota Cuban Film Festival
7:30 pm, Thursdays, March 24-April 21, 2011*

With sell-out crowds at last year's festival, Minnesotans'  love affair with
Cuban cinema is clear. And it is also clear that there is a hunger for
information about this intriguing island to our south, so rich in music and
the arts. Yet, despite all that we have to share with one another, our
government still denies us acess. So, although most of us can't get there in
person, we can get a taste of Cuban life through their movies.

The film festival will again be presented at St. Anthony Main Theatre and
will  consist of six features.

Likely films include *Sons of Cuba* <http://www.sonsofcuba.com/>, *Por
Primera Vez <http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0405251/> (For the First Time),
Lisanka <http://www.havanatimes.org/?p=26523>,
*, (Tomorrow), Video de
 (Family Video) *and* **Se Permuta*
<http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0122700/>* (House
for Swap)*.
Confirmed is an appearance by Emmy award winner Saul Landau with his new
film, *Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand up?* on Thursday, March 10.
All films are subtitled and each will be followed at a nearby bistro with a
discussion about the film. Admission will be $7.00 for most features.
