Cuba: In the Shadow of Doubt

directed by Jim Burroughs and produced by Suzanne Bauman and Carol Polakoff
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Filmed on location at La Plata, Castro s former guerrilla headquarters- the first time any foreign film crew had been permitted there - the documentary examines the origins of Castro s revolution, and its ultimate successes and failures. It places U.S.-Cuban relations within the context of history, dating back to the Spanish-American War in 1898. The documentary goes on to paint a canvas of everyday Cuban life. It contrasts the successes of Cuba - medical care, education and housing - with the often repressive political measures implemented by the Castro government. We hear from Cuban artists, State Department officials, exiled writers, and Fidel Castro himself. We visit the Psychiatric Hospital, the Women's Prison, and a library to see what books are available. This film does full justice to its complex subject. It is neither a rationale for Communist Cuba nor a political tool for Cuban exiles. It will interest audiences of all political persuasions.
