Event Details

Screening of the newly restored Cuban film De Cierta Manera (1974)

A fascinating docu-romance-drama and critical ethnographic study of a new couple, Yolanda and Mario. The film assesses the complexities of intersectional, marginalised lives in 1970s Cuba through a factual narrative that contextualises the relationship, the community, and the tensions of life in a new socialist society. This was the first Cuban feature film directed by a woman and the last directed by Sara Gómez (1942-1974), who died suddenly while De Cierta Manera was being edited.

The screening will be followed by a presentation of archival material from the London-based Latin American Workers' Association, courtesy of the MayDay Rooms' collection.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
