"I am Cuba" Directed by Mikhail Kalatozov, 140 minutes "I am Cuba" Filmed by great Russian director Mikhail Kalatozov (The Cranes Are Flying), I Am Cuba is an epic poem to Communist kitsch--a whirling, feverish dance through the sensuous decadence of Batista's Havana and the grinding poverty and oppression of the Cuban people. In four main stories showing the rise of the revolution, Kalatozov's astonishingly acrobatic camera takes the viewer on a rapturous roller coaster ride of bathing beauties, landless peasants and student revolutionaries. Presented jointly by master directors Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese, I Am Cuba has received universal acclaim and admiration from around the world as a true classic of world cinema.  In Spanish and Russian with English subtitles. Please join us for a good movie and a cup of coffee! Everybody is welcome!

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
