FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS

SCREENINGS AND FREE EVENTS:

From a nostalgic tale of a childhood in Havana to an absurdist Argentinian drama in which a listless millennial sets out on a series of short encounters as the world flirts with possible apocalypse, HFFNY has a movie for everyone.

Films will be screened during the afternoons and evenings with FREE panels at 11AM on Saturday and Sunday. Masterclasses, retrospectives, and other special events will be presented in partnership with local cultural organizations and educational institutions, free of charge and open to the public.

TRIBUTES TO THOSE WE LOST:

In recognition of two Cuban filmmakers that we lost this year, Juan Carlos Tabío (1943-2021) and Enrique Pineda Barnet (1933-2021) the Havana Film Festival New York is celebrating their contributions to the field of filmmaking with screenings of the newly restored versions of some of their earlier films. :

● Se Permuta / House for Swap
Juan Carlos Tabío | Cuba | Fiction | 1983 | 103min
A charming farce about Cuba’s housing shortage, and the first sitcom produced by Cuba’s film institute, it was widely received as a hilarious guide to the heart of Cuban society.

● Giselle
Enrique Pineda Barnet | Cuba | Docu-Fiction | 1965 | 90min
A thrilling performance film that follows Cuba’s immortal ballerina, Alicia Alonso, in her acclaimed portrayal of Giselle in the eponymous ballet that made her an international star

A SPECIAL PRESENTATION OF CLASSIC CINEMA:

● The Newsreels – Santiago Álvarez (ICAIC)
Produced weekly by Cuba’s foremost montage filmmaker from 1960 to 1990, these newsreels captured Cuban revolutionary history and world events from a distinctly Latin American populist perspective.page2image2663568page2image2655872
