A pioneering figure of Cuban cinema, Sara Gómez was one of the first women to work within the auspices of the ICAIC, Cuba’s post-Revolutionary film ministry. De cierta manera (One Way or Another), her only feature film, was the first by a woman in Cuba, the first shot on 16mm in Cuba, and one of the few made by an Afro-Cuban director. Yet she did not live to see its ultimate realization. Gómez died during production, at age 31, and One Way or Another would be finished by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea and other colleagues several years after Gómez completed cinematography.
For ten years Light Industry has been one of the leading venues for alternative film and electronic art in New York. This fall Light Industry presents at Princeton a selection of highlights from their first decade. The series is curated by Thomas Beard, a founder and director of Light Industry, and organized by Devin Fore (German).
