DVD

Retra√ßant l'histoire de Yo Soy Cuba, ce documentaire essaye de comprendre les raisons qui ont pouss√© les autorit√©s cubaines et sovi√©tiques √† retirer ce film des √©crans. Il m√®ne une r√©flexion sur la fa√ßon dont les Ňďuvres d'art √©voluent dans le temps, selon les diff√©rentes interpr√©tations auxquelles elles sont soumises. Retrouvant certains collaborateurs sovi√©tiques et cubains, le r√©alisateur d√©couvre √† travers leurs mots, l'√©motion pr√©sente lors de la cr√©ation du long m√©trage de 1964, et tente de saisir comment ces deux mondes, si diff√©rents, ont r√©ussi √† traduire la grandeur des √©pop√©es sovi√©tique au sein de la culture cubaine.

Revue de presse

¬ęFerraz's documentary is a fascinating trip through the making of "one of the most deliriously beautiful films ever made" (L.A. Weekly): Mikhail Kalotosov's 1964 masterpiece, I Am Cuba. Requiring an unprecedented 14 months of shooting, this first and only Cuban/Soviet co-production ever made was intended as a celebration of Castro's revolution. Why then was the film rejected by Cubans and Soviets alike upon its release and shelved for more than 30 years unt il it was rediscovered and championed in the 1990s by North Americans, including Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola? Through a combination of breathtaking shots from the original film and interviews with surviving Soviet and Cuban cast and crew members, Ferraz investigates the motives behind the banning of the film. The resulting documentary, I am Cuba, The Siberian Mammoth, provides us with insights into the ideology of the Cold War, the recent history of Cuba, and the great irony of I Am Cuba which only the passage of time has been able to reveal.¬Ľ

"Mr. Ferraz has produced a welcome piece of historical explication." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
