Cinema Golondrina presents: Soy Cuba


Beginning on Sunday 6 September the Choclo Collective, a group of Latin American artists, film makers and other creative people, will be hosting a series of film and discussion evenings named Cinema Golondrina.

Kia Ora,
hola! bienvenido (welcome) to Cine Golondrina’s first event!
Cine Golondrina is a Latin American regular film session held at Newtown Community and Cultural Centre.

Each session will have a different theme, there will be a film and after space to chat about the film and it’s themes and context and your opinions (perfect for all the film nerds out there!).

The first topic will be film and politics, and the first film is “Soy Cuba” (I am Cuba), which is described as “a whirling, feverish dance through both the sensuous decadence of Batista's Havana and the grinding poverty and oppression of the Cuban people”. You can check the trailer out here: and the synopsis below!

There will also be a small market with Latin American artists work available for you to browse!

This event will be run following COVID-19 safety guidelines, at half capacity, with contact tracing, more information here:

We look forward to seeing you there to share with us a little bit of Latin American culture and art, and have some exciting discussion about film and politics!!

Sunday, 6 September, 5pm at the Newtown Community Centre, Rintoul St.

This will be followed by two more films at the same time and location:
13 September: The Hour of Furnaces (Argentina 1966-1968)
20 September: When Two Worlds Collide (Peru 2006-2011)
