    I Am Cuba

    ★★★★

    Revolution as an unmatched style. It was a collaboration of Soviet and Cuban cinematic minds, gathered to create a celebrating testament of Cuba's outing from imperialist dogmas, but also at the same time parading as a middle finger directed towards the USA specifically, and the concept of the west, thematically in the wake of the recently resolved Missile crisis and Bay of Pigs failed invasion.
