A Paper Tiger production made during the inauguration of Cuba’s international Film and Television School of San Antonio de los Baños (EICTV) during the 1986 Havana Film Festival, one of the best and most reputed film schools in the world. This episode includes footage of the school’s opening ceremony, which explains its focus on third world cinema. This show is of great historical value for those interested in third world social movements. Josefina de Zayas and Isabel Larguia also give us an inside look at Cuban’s state run press. They review magazines such as “Bohemia”, dedicated to research pieces on politics and economy, “Revolución y Cultura”, on cultural life and “Mujeres” concerning women issues, including a socialist woman’s fashion section.
