THE LAST SUPPER (1977, 110 mins.)
Directed by Tomas Gutierrez Alea
A dazzling moral tale of a pious 18th-century slaveholder who decides to instruct his slaves in the glories of Christianity by inviting twelve of them to participate in a reenactment of the Last Supper. The film’s centerpiece is a sardonic tour de force that combines the blasphemous ironies of Bunuel with an ominous undercurrent of imminent political reckoning.
