Abstract
The article studies two cases of interaction between Cuban and Soviet culture in the early 60ies: Guillermo Cabrera Infante’s articles about the Soviet cinema and Mikhail Kalatozov’s  film “I Am Cuba”. Being one of the leading film criticists of the first period of the Cuban Revoltion, Cabrera Infante in his critics on the modern soviet movies expresses the need of creating a new revolutionary cinema for Cuba. The contradictory “I Am Cuba” becomes precisely such a new kind of film. The second part of the article is dedicated to its particular poetics and perception.
