Description


Neorrealismo y cine en Cuba: Historia y discurso en torno a la primera pol mica de la Revoluci n, 1951-1962 examina la historia est tica y las relaciones entre la producci n cinematogr fica cubana y el neorrealismo italiano. El recorrido hist rico comienza en 1951, antes del triunfo de la Revoluci n, y termina en 1962, a o que marca la ruptura entre los cineastas cubanos y la est tica neorrealista italiana. Las colaboraciones principales sucedieron entre los directores de cine Tom's Guti rrez Alea y Julio Garc a Espinosa y el cineasta neorrealista italiano Cesare Zavattini. Las circunstancias que llevaron al fin de las relaciones entre Zavattini y los cineastas cubanos est n conectadas a la pel cula El joven rebelde, dirigida por Garc a Espinosa y estrenada por primera vez en 1961. La ruptura se dio por divergencias creativas e ideol gicas sobre la manera en que se quer a retratar al protagonista del largometraje. Este detalle, que aparentemente puede parecer de menor importancia, tuvo repercusiones importantes que llevaron a un distanciamiento de Garc a Espinosa, de Guti rrez Alea, as como del resto de los cineastas cubanos que estaban trabajando en el Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industria Cinematogr ficos (ICAIC) a partir de 1959, para buscar sus propias estrategias creativas con el fin de moldear una producci n cinematogr fica nacional. Sin embargo, cabe se alar que los cineastas cubanos no habr an encontrado la gram tica necesaria para reescribir su cine revolucionario sin las colaboraciones y sobre todo sin la ruptura con Zavattini. Este nuevo lenguaje cinematogr fico no habr a podido existir sin las varias pausas y distancias que caracterizaron la relaci n cubana con el neorrealismo. En otras palabras, el intercambio fragmentado entre Garc a Espinosa, Guti rrez Alea y Zavattini cre nuevos espacios dentro de los cuales los cubanos pudieron encontrar oportunidades creativas para expresar su propia visi n cinematogr fica.

Neorrealismo y cine en Cuba: Historia y discurso en torno a la primera pol mica de la Revoluci n, 1951-1962 Neorealism and Cinema in Cuba: History and Discourse on the First Polemic of the Revolution, 1951-1962] examines the aesthetic history and relations between Cuban film production and Italian Neorealism. The historical framework begins in 1951 before the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and ends in 1962, a year that marks a rupture between Cuban filmmakers and the Italian neorealist aesthetic. The main collaborations happened between Cuban directors Tom's Guti rrez Alea and Julio Garc a Espinosa and Italian neorealist filmmaker Cesare Zavattini. The circumstances that led to the end of the relationship between Zavattini and the Cuban filmmakers are connected to the film El joven rebelde The Young Rebel], directed by Garc a Espinosa and screened for the first time in 1961. The rupture centered on creative and ideological differences regarding the way in which the protagonist was to be portrayed in the movie. This seemingly minor disagreement had considerably larger repercussions, the end result of which was that Garc a Espinosa and Guti rrez Alea, as well as the rest of the Cuban filmmakers who worked within the Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industria Cinematogr ficos (ICAIC) after 1959, were driven to find their own creative strategies to craft a national film production. However, the Cuban filmmakers would not have found the necessary grammar to rewrite their own revolutionary cinema without the rupture with Zavattini. This new cinematographic language could not have existed without the various pauses and the distances that characterized the Cuban relationship with Neorealism. In other words, the fragmentary interchange between Garc a Espinosa, Gutierrez Alea, and Zavattini created new spaces in which the Cubans could find creative opportunities to express their own cinematic vision.
