Two Cuban film classics at the Trylon Theater


March 3 - 12

Born in poverty, Corrieri became one of Cuba’s leading actors and theater directors as well as the Cuban Communist Party’s head of cultural development. The Trylon presents two of that country’s greatest films, both of which star Corrieri and blend the personal and the political. Promotional support for these screenings is provided by the Minnesota Cuba Committee, in conjunction with its Cuban Film Festival, running February 21–March 28.

St. Paul City Council adopts resolution against the blockade
On January 23, the St. Paul City Council unanimously adopted a resolution opposing the U.S. embargo against Cuba. It was sponsored by Council members Jane Prince, Rebecca Noecker and Dai Thao, and with it, St. Paul joins Minneapolis and seven other cities that have adopted similar resolutions. The connections between St. Paul, Minnesota and Cuba go back to the 19th century as set out in the background information document supporting the resolution. A video of the Council discussion can be seen here. It was also covered in the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Prensa Latina. Representatives Noecker and Prince pictured front left to right with members and supporters of the Minnesota Cuba Committee. A list of cities that have adopted resolutions against the blockade can be found here.
