Cuba and the Cameraman

  • Join us for a Virtual Online Panel Discussion at 8pm CDT

Casket Cinema celebrates our 13th birthday with a virtual screening of the Cuban documentary, “CUBA & THE CAMERAMAN”. Emmy award winning videographer John Alpert filmed on island starting in 1972 and over the next 5 decades created this amazing work. Alpert’s camera wanders from Havana, to farmers in the field, to interviewing Fidel Castro. He returns each decade to check on his “friends”.

Through the course of 50 years we see his intimate connection to the cubans, to Castro and the country. His lens shows us Cuba at the height of Soviet Union and its depth after its collapse. His friends go from profitable farmers to having their animals stolen by hungry thieves.

This doc is filmed man on the street style, the directors love and humor get us through the ups & downs of this country from the 1970s to the present.  

Because of the pandemic, this will be a virtual screening. Pre-watch the film on the Netflix platform before we discuss the film at 8pm, January 7th, 2020
