“Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up!”
and music by The Cuban Cowboys
Q & A by Saul Landau
Reception will follow
In April 1961, the CIA sent a force of Cuban exiles to overthrow the Cuban government.
This resulted in the Bay of Pigs Fiasco. Fifty years later, a new documentary shows
that US-backed violence against Cuba continued for decades. The new film, with Danny
Glover, anti-Cuba terrorists, and Fidel Castro himself (filmed recently) is combined
with fascinating archival footage and a rare recorded interview from prison with
one of the Cuban 5. These men are serving long sentences in US prisons for trying
to stop terrorism against tourist sites in their country.
“Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up!”provides every professor and specialist
with an invaluable teaching and learning tool about US-Cuba policy and the history
of terrorism in that policy. It also explains the story of and context for the “Cuban
5,” the Cuban agents who penetrated Miami exile groups to stop their plans for violence
against the island, and ended up in US prisons.” Julia Sweig, Nelson and David Rockefeller Senior Fellow for Latin America Studies and Director for Latin America Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.
“It’s a real Who’s Who of key figures in the more than half-century-long grudge
match over Cuba.” Tracey Eaton former Dallas Morning News’ Bureau Chief, Havana
“Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up!” produced by Emmy-Award Winner Saul Landau, with live music from the Cuban Cowboys. Won loud applause at the Havana Film Festival.
