Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up - Presented by the Maysles Cinema
Friday, July 26th, 7:30pm
(Part of "2 Days of Solidarity with Cuba in New York City")
Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up
Saul Landau, 2010, 82 min.

Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up chronicles half a century of hostile US relations to Cuba by telling the story of the Cuban Five, intelligence agents sent to penetrate Cuban exile terrorist groups in Miami and now serving long prison sentences. The film highlights decades of assassinations and sabotage at first backed by Washington, then ignored by the very government that launched a "war against terrorism". Renowned documentarian and activist Saul Landau landed interviews with the leading anti-Castro terrorists now in their 80's who recounted their deeds often with the blessing of the CIA as well as interviews with Cuban state security officials explaining why they sent the five agents to infiltrate the violent Miami exile groups. Featuring Danny Glover and Fidel Castro, the film raises and tries to answer the question: What did Cuba do to deserve such hostile treatment? Key events are traced including the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis as well as the numerous attempts on Castro's life.

The film reveals a story of violence that also echoed on the streets of Washington DC, New York and especially Miami where critics of the real terrorists end up beaten, bombed and dead. Saul Landau is an internationally known scholar, author, commentator, and filmmaker on foreign and domestic policy issues. His films include Fidel, the first documentary chronicling Fidel Castro after the Cuban Revolution. He has made more than 40 films and TV programs on social, political, economic and historical issues.

Panel discussion following screening features historian Jane Franklin, author of "Cuban Foreign Relations" and "Cuba and the United States: A Chronological History." Moderator, Nellie Bailey, Black Agenda Report & the July 26th Committee.
