Memorias del Subdesarrollo (Memories of Underdevelopment), Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, 1968, Cuba, 97 min.

In the aftermath of the Bay of Pigs invasion, Sergio, an affluent writer, decides to stay in Cuba despite his family’s emigration to the United States. Pessimistic about the revolution’s promise to bring sweeping change to his country, he spends his days prowling the streets of Havana looking for female companionship. The revolution abandons him.
