Cuba: In the Shadow of Doubt

Loading...
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.

The Ochoa Affair: A Cuban Military Idol Toppled

Loading...
Arnando Ochoa was a revered military commander in Cuba, leader of 50,000 troops who triumphed in Angola, and a staunch supporter of Fidel Castro. In June of 1989 he was arrested by Raul Castro and put on trial for drug trafficking, negligence of duty, and misappropriation of hard currency. The country was rocked by the televised show trial. A generation of young men had grown up with a belief in the righteousness of the revolution. Yet Fidel had led them to a costly victory in Africa where many young Cuban soldiers died or were maimed. There were severe shortages of food, water, drugs and electricity after the Russians pulled out and the U.S. embargo was imposed.

When Castro Seized the Hilton

Loading...
Picture Conrad Hilton glowing with pride over his new luxury hotel in Havana only to have it taken over soon after opening by Fidel Castro to use as his revolution's headquarters. The Havana Hilton went from being a capitalistic monument to become the main headquarters of Cuban communism. The takeover was one of the strongest symbols of the changes that came to dominate the dramatic developments in Cuba, and its relationship with the U.S. Using unique historical archive footage, interviews with people who were there, and exuberant music of the 50s and 60s, the film captures an era in a way that history books can not.
