"The Last Supper"
Directed by Tomas Gutierrez-Alea
Set in the 18th
century, this celebrated film from Cuba is photographed with a lush color palette. A
startlingly beautiful masterpiece that is based on an incident from Cuban history. The
film effectively presents a moral irony as a pious slaveholder decides to improve his soul
and instruct his slaves in the glories of Christianity by inviting 12 of them to
participate in a reenactment of the Last Supper. Spanish with English subtitles.
