Search Museum of the Moving Image

Havana Film Festival New York

Apr 7 — Apr 8, 2018

The Museum will host two days of film screenings as part of this year’s Havana Film Festival New York. The Cuban classics A Cuban Fight Against Demons and The Survivors will be presented as part of the program “Restoring Titon.” These films have been restored by the Academy Film Archive and the Cinemateca de Cuba on the occasion of the 90th birthday of the great director Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. The Festival will also showcase Tie Your Plow to a Star, as part of  a tribute to the late Argentine filmmaker Fernando Birri who is widely considered the father of New Latin American Cinema, and the Brazilian documentary about Havana’s famous caberet O Gato de Havana.

Please note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the originally scheduled film The Good Demons has been canceled and replaced with O gato de Havana. The Good Demons is showing on April 14, at 9:00 p.m. at the AMC Loews 34th Street as part of the Havana Film Festival.
