A Night in Cuba! Cinemattic and Black Factory Cinema team up to show you a unique collection of short films made in Cuba by international filmmakers, guided and mentored by maestros Werner Herzog (2017) and Abbas Kiarostami (2016). A unique CinemaAttic experience.

A selection of the best short films from the workshops held over the course of 10 days in Cuba with 50 independent directors at the mythical Escuela Internacional de Cine and Televisión de San Antonio de Los Baños. A school that stands alone in the way to understand cinema and approach reality.

Cuba is in itself a great subject for a cinematographic focus. The wealth of social variety, the influence of their recent story, its resistance to influence from most of the outside world (and the myth that goes around it), the expectation of a normalisation of its relationships with the rest of the world and the changes this will bring set a unique pattern, creates a topical character which we are about to explore in more detail through the lenses of Black Factory Cinema students.

Black Factory Cinema is committed to the creation of alternative spaces for training y5f12f247706649.58823417394d8oung filmmakers. These practical workshops have been directed by established Masters of International Cinema since 2014. Black Factory Cinema previously held Filmmakers Workshops with Abbas Kiarostami in Colombia en 2014, Barcelona in 2015 and Cuba 2016.

This programme is a selection of Cinemaattic’s favourite films resulting from the 2017 collection directed by Werner Herzog and the 2016 collection directed by Abbas Kiarostami.

Werner Herzog, German filmmaker, was born in Munich on 5th September 1942. Throughout a long and prolific career, beginning at the age of 19, he has made more than 63 films, experimenting with different formats including fiction, documentaries, short films and television films. An explorer of the world, of its dangers, mysteries and twists. Tireless expeditionist of human limits, of their endurance and dementia. Researcher of himself, of his strength and his obstinacy for ideas and for creative impulses. His microscope; cinema. His limits; none.

Abbas Kiarostami, one of the filmmakers, photographers and video artists most influential and established from the international film community, has been carrying out an educational work with young filmmakers from around the world in countries like Italy, France, Germany, England, Spain, Korea, Japan, Morocco, Iran and other countries in different continents.

Put together Cuba as a great location to film, and the unique vision of these two maestros supervising the ideas of some brutal young filmmakers.

Make your way in! This is going to be a special Cinemaattic
