MEMORIAS DEL SUBDESARROLLO

(MEMORIES OF THE UNDERDEVELOPMENT)

Directed by : Tomás GUTIÉRREZ ALEA

Year of production : 1968 Country : CUBA Length : 97 minutes

Synopsis

Memories of the Underdevelopment tells the story of Sergio, an upper-class intellectual who – a year after the Castro-led revolution – decides not to leave the country, even though his parents and estranged wife have escaped to Miami. Alienated from the major socio-political upheaval that is transforming the reality that surrounds him, Sergio is a misfit, caught between a past he half-heartedly attempts to maintain, and the inevitable changes he cannot or will not embrace. His only income is the compensation he receives following the nationalization of his property. Unable to finish the novel he’s writing, Sergio spends his time chasing women, observing the outside world and reflecting on his own life, trying to understand what is happening to his country and himself.
