CLANDESTINES (Underground) This classic Cuban film centres on a love affair between two youth, and their struggle in the urban underground movement against dictator Fulgencio Batista in the late 1950s. Suspenseful and inspiring, it portrays the heroism of the Cuban youth and their sacrifices that brought the Revolution to fruition. 1987, 103 min, Colour. Directed by Fernando Perez SE PERMUTA (House for swap) Gloria (Rosita Fornes) is a feisty middle-aged woman determined to get a place to live in the very trying, overcrowded city. Her task is made all the more difficult by her daughter Yolanda (Isabel Santos) who keeps changing plans about where she wants to live.

Trying to fit in with Yolanda's rolercoaster romantic life its not long before Gloria has so many housing balls juggling in the air that it is certain they are all going to fall down with a crash. First-time Director Juan Carlos Tabió. (NR, 98 minutes) 1983

Tuesday 24 August 6-10pm

UN HOMBRE DE EXITO ( A Successful Man ) A Successful Man An epic chronicle of thirty years of Cuban politics and history, A Successful Man has been compared to The Godfather for its lavish period re-creation. The tale begins in the thirties with the brothers in school and the future full of promise.

This is a story of corruption versus innocence and purity of right is blessed with Solás' meticulous attention to detail. Directed by Humberto Solás, 1986.

LA BELLA DEL ALAMBRA Cuba in the twenties. Rachel works as a chorus girl in a low establishment where the boundaries are blurred between artistic performance, prostitution, fun and exploitation. The film, a cross between a musical and a melodrama, is a good example of Creole culture and folklore.

Thanks to Mario and Gonzalo Romeu's music it received an Academy nomination for «Best Foreign Picture». Directed by Enrique Pineda Barnet, 1989

Kodak Theatre, Napier St, Freeman's Bay $10 each or $15 for two films - buy drinks at the bar Put on by the Cuba Friendship Society and Supported by the Screen Directors Guild NZ
