Virtually every aspect of this opening scene of Soy Cuba is impressive. Most notable for me, however, is the timing and cinematic movement of each of the shots. Notice how long each shot goes on for, and in the rooftop dance scene starting around minute 2:30, it’s almost continuous despite multiple actors and objects to move around. It actually hurt my brain to figure out how they did that, but I’m grateful for having to think about things like cinematographic movement, and thereby notice the genius of scenes like this.
