Memories of Underdevelopment (Memorias del subdesarrollo)
Saturday, April 15, 2017:
When Memories of Underdevelopment was finally released in the United States in 1973, no one expected such a film to come out of Castro’s Cuba: a sharp, funny, pro-revolutionary period piece (set in 1961, right after the Bay of Pigs) with a disaffected intellectual hero (Sergio Corrieri) who, as, former New York Times film critic Vincent Canby wrote, “moves through Havana as if he were a scuba diver exploring the ruins of a civilization he abhorred but cannot bear to leave.”
“It’s possibly one of the most eye-opening films I can ever recommend to anyone because it gives you a glimpse on an internal struggle.” —actor Gael Garcia Bernal
