Abstract and Keywords

This chapter traces dance in Cuban cinema from the onset of the Revolution to contemporary films. In so doing, the author attempts to set up a Cuban structure of feeling and how a corporeal form of Cubanidad manifests through various filmic representations, whether narrative or documentary film. Might dance be an inherent aspect of Cubanidad? How does the Cuban filmic apparatus incorporate dance and all of its complexities into a narrative about Cuban fortitude? The films discussed include: Un día en el solar, Los del baile, Memorias del subdesarrollo, Son o no son, and Habana solo.

Keywords: Cuban son, ICAIC, Cuban national cinema, Memorias del subdesarrollo, Un día en el solar, Habana solo
