MEMORIES OF UNDERDEVELOPMENT (1968, 110 mins.)
Directed by Tomas Gutierrez Alea
As the first film from post-revolutionary Cuba to be released in the U.S., this had a widespread impact unequalled in the history of Third World cinema. Set in the early 1960s, the film centers on a Europeanized Cuban intellectual, too idealistic to leave for Miami, but too decadent to fit into the new society.
