Santiago Álvarez

One of this outstanding Cuban film maker’s shorter films. A true materialist filmmaker, in the philosophical sense. Note at the end of the film Alvarez’s use of the same machine gun title technique as the US based film collective The Newsreel, with whom Alvarez exchanged footage. A shame that no decent documentary has been done on him. Wilkerson’s remains unfortunately not very rigorous, not covering his vital and necessary international connections for example.
