Kartik's rating of the film Salut les Cubains

A great watch. The photos are a treat to watch in action, especially the parts synced to music. They give the visuals a rhythm and a humor of their own. Smooth, lovely pacing. Often you forget you're watching a slideshow of stills. It's refreshing to see attention to the *actual* Cuban soul and contemporary culture, and not tropical, exotic tropes most people think of. And there's Varda's characteristic feminism.
