‘AL FILO DEL MACHETE’
The Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies at the University of Miami will show this documentary about the individuals who fought and continue to fight to liberate Cuba from the totalitarian government. 2:30 p.m. daily through July at Casa Bacardi, University of Miami, 1531 Brescia Ave., Coral Gables. Students free; others $5. Details: (305) 284-2822 or http://casabacardi.iccas.miami.edu/.
Cinema Vortex will show Julie Talen’s film, "Pretend," in its Southeastern US premiere. This multichannel narrative tells the story of a troubled family through the use of flashbacks, fantasy sequences and parallel actions. The film was shot entirely on a mini-DV camcorder and experiments with the frame-within-a-frame aesthetic – at times presenting up to 50 images in the frame at one time. 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum, 1001 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. $5.
