Organised by North London Cuba Solidarity Campaign (NLCSC), Cine Cuba is a monthly film club dedicated to showing films from and about Cuba. We aim to present a range of films – both documentary and drama – covering a variety of topics which will give the viewer an insight into the Cuban revolution, society, history, politics and culture.
Future films include : El Brigadista ; Fidel – The Untold Story ; Cecilia.
We hope that viewers will stay at the end of the film and participate in the relaxed but lively post-film drink and discussion.
