What we recommend this week are screenings, debates and analysis around the Cuban and contemporary video creation. Muestra ON/OFF, in Casa Victor Hugo, promises to get us closer to the Cuban and French films. Though this is not the whole program, so if you want to know more you’re in the right place.
In Visual Arts there’s more, just keep looking. In Dance, we have the presentations of the Cuban National Ballet in the Kennedy Center, Washington, and the Cuban School of Ballet in the Great Theater of Havana. In Music, a lot of concerts this week. In Cinema, another invitation under the stars. In Literature, the book presentation with La caricia del latigo. Rufo Caballero, un idolo imposible, in Miami.
