JUSTICE FILM: Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up?
Co-Sponsored by the U.S. Women and Cuba Collaboration
In April 1961, the CIA sent a force of Cuban exiles to overthrow the Cuban government. This resulted in the Bay of Pigs Fiasco.
50 years later, a new documentary shows that US-backed violence against Cuba continued for decades. Some Bay of Pigs participants and the most well-known terrorists appear on camera to boast or re-evaluate their activities over the years. Orlando Bosch, Jose Basulto, Luis Posada Carriles and Antonio Veciana discuss assassinations and other actions they took to bring down the Revolutionary government. The new film, with Danny Glover, Cuba's top counter spy and Fidel Castro himself (filmed recently) is combined with fascination 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"; produced by Emmy Winner Saul Landau, with music from the Cuban Cowboys won a major applause at the Havana Film Festival.
