As part of the program of activities of the 39th International Festival of the New Latin American Cinema, that will take place in Havana from December 8th to the 17th, a special tribute will be paid to the American director James Ivory, and there will be a space to remember the Revolution of the Russian people.

The 89-year-old filmmaker will be remembered with the screening of films shot between the mid-1980s and 2005, including multi-award-winning Return to Howards End and What's left of the day. This cycle will be completed with the movies Waiting for Mr. Bridge, A room with a view, The Russian countess, The city of your destiny, Jefferson in Paris, and Divorce.

The important event of th Latin American cinema will also greet the centenary of the October Revolution, during which a restored copy of October, a silent film by the Russian maestro Serguei Eisenstein. released in 1928 and

considered a classic of the seventh art will be projected. The tape, which tells the events October 1917, when the Bolshevik Revolution triumphed in Russia, is a version of almost two hours, restored in 2012.

Undoubtedly, the most important thing is that this copy includes the soundtrack created for the film by the Austrian composer and conductor Edmund Meisel. The music of Meisel, who had previously worked with Eisenstein to create the soundtrack of The Battleship Potemkin, was

executed by the Berlin Symphony, and incorporated into the film in 1929, a year after its premiere.
