The Pollock Theater’s first Film Festival showcases the diverse talents of emerging Cuban filmmakers. With state-of-the-art presentation and post screening Q&A’s with directors, this festival offers a unique experience that should not be missed.
An intellectual leaves the Cuban revolution and ‘underdevelopment’ behind only to find himself at odds with the ambiguities of his new life in the ‘developed’ world. This film is a portrait of alienation, of an outsider with no clear-cut politics or ideology.
We were joined for a post-screening Q&A with Director Miguel Coyula, moderated by the Department of Film and Media Studies Chair Cristina Venegas.
This event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center and the Department of Film & Media Studies.
Media are global by nature; they express culture just as much as they transcend borders. The CWC Global series is dedicated to showcasing media from around the world. This series features screenings and events that place UCSB in conversation with international media makers and global contexts across our deeply connected world.
