Havana, Aug 27 (ACN) A pick of Cuban movies by filmmakers Sara Gomez and Santiago alvarez will be screened at Berlin’s Archival Assembly Movie Festival running September 1-8.

The program includes the screening on September 7 of the film Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Open air at Westgarten), a copy of the 1974 Cuban film “De cierta manera.” This will be the German premiere of the Cuban film.
That same day, Berlin’s Arsenal movie theater will present the “Two Prints Compared” dedicated to Santiago Alvarez by screening the film Cyclone vs Hurricane.
Three films by Sara Gomez will also be screen during the festival which organizers expect to hold every six months.
