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.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
