n the mid-60’s, Cuban filmmaker, Santiago Álvarez, created a short but charged film entitled Now! In his very iconic style, it was very much a documentary and a mixed media piece. The only access to tools he had to create with were usually found- public images, music, and a bit of his own magical montage making. He created a very dense piece that drew many parallels between Cubans during the revolution and the plight of African Americans at that time.
