Historias de la revolución / STORIES OF THE REVOLUTION
It Happened Yesterday

Comprising three dramatic sketches (El herido, Rebeldes and La batalla de Santa Clara) depicting the armed insurrection against Batista in the Cuba of the 50s, this is also the saga of the youths who lived, loved and fought in the hope of a better future. The movie handles the epic proportions and mysticism of the Cuban Revolution from an almost documentary angle.
TOMAS GUTIERREZ ALEA Havana, 1928-1996, he made the first ever Cuban documentary, Esta tierra nuestra (1959). His first feature film, Historias de la revolución (1960), earned him a prestige which he subsequently maintained with La muerte de un burócrata (1966), Memorias del subdesarrollo (1968), La última cena (The Last Supper, 1976), Fresa y chocolate (Strawberry and Chocolate, 1993) and Guantanamera (1994), the last two of which he co-directed with Juan Carlos Tabío. He founded the Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industria Cinematográfica.
