Memorias del Subdesarrollo (Memories of Underdevelopment)

Thursday, October 3, 2019

This movie is part of our Hispanic Heritage Month Film Series. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with film series curator Ryan Long, Associate Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Maryland, College Park.

This classic Cuban film observes the protagonist Sergio (Sergio Corrieri) through
his life following the departure of his wife, parents, and friends in the wake of the Bay of Pigs incident. Alone in a brave new world, Sergio observes the constant threat of foreign invasion while chasing young women all over Havana before finally meeting Elena (Daisy Granados), a young girl he seeks to mold into the image of his ex-wife, but at what cost to himself?
