Now! (1965) is the title of a short subject directed by Cuban filmmaker Santiago Álvarez, about racial discrimination towards black people and ensuing race riots in the United States.

The propaganda/political film film uses elements such as morgue photos and assorted newsreel footage, reminiscent in style to current video clips.

The short featured the 1963 song of the same title by singer/actress Lena Horne.
