Tuesday night is your last chance to see Sundance and Cine Las Americas International Film Festival selsection Memorias del Desarrollo. Directed by Miguel Coyula, Memorias del Desarrollo is about Cuban novelist Sergio Carcet. Despite having experienced the Cuban Revolution, Carcet feels like nothing more than an aging college professor living an isolated life in New York City. He is frustrated that there is little to no interest in his new novel by his publisher. Another quircky characteristic are the collages Carcet builds to depict his images of the world, which you will find in the movie trailer below. The film’s narrative structure consists of a mash-up of flashbacks, dreams, and hallucinations mixing live action, animation, and news footage from the last half of the 20th century.
You can catch Memorias del Desarrollo on Tuesday, April 27, at 6 p.m. It is showing at The Regal Metropolitan located at 901 Little Texas Lane. Like all the movies being show at the Cine Las Americas International Film Fest, Memorias Del Desarrollo will be shown with English subtitles.
