Cuban Film to Open The 2nd Moscow Latin American Movie Festival
Alexei Chernyshev, head of the organizing committee of the festival said the opening of the event will be a good time to commemorate the half-a- century since the creation of the Cuban Art and Film Institute and the centenary of the film's photography director, Soviet Serguei Urusevskiy.

Chernyshev praised Urusevskiy's artistic work in the film that was directed by outstanding filmmaker Mijail Kalatozov, reported Prensa Latina.

With impeccable photography, Soy Cuba (1964) describes, through four stories, the transformations in Cuba from the war against Fulgencio Batista's regime until the Revolution led by Fidel Castro, and the reaffirmation of the singular and independent identity of the island, said Chernyshev.

He said the 141-min film to be screened in the Judozhestvenny Theatre, will open the festival that will take place until March 3 with the screening of films from Venezuela, Mexico, Chile, Uruguay, Guatemala, among other countries.
