It’s a sympathetic and affectionate portrayal of Cuba and of Castro, which in
the rabid anti-Castro atmosphere of American media makes it a rare and
fascinating document — an inverse portrait of US disinformation and censorship.
It’s a conventional biopic of Castro’s life — starting with the usual old
photographs and an account of his schooling, continuing with his involvement
in student politics at the University of Havana (during a period of intense
repression by the Batista government), and finally following his career as
armed insurgent, successful revolutionary, and popular leader.
What makes it highly unconventional — almost breath-taking at times — is that it covers the life of a socialist revolution as well as of a famous man, and that it treats
a much-maligned and demonized country and character with respect and affection.
This in turn illuminates for the American viewer how pervasive and complete is
the anti-Cuba propaganda campaign in the US.
