What did Cuba do to us?
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 U.S. backed violence against Cuba continued for decades.
The new documentary, with Danny Glover and recently filmed footage of Fidel Castro, is combined with fascinating archival film and a rare recorded interview from prison with one of the Cuban 5. These men are serving long sentences in U.S. prisons for trying to stop terrorist attacks on Cuba.
"Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up!" Produced and directed by Emmy winner, Saul Landau, with music from the Cuban Cowboys.
Organized by the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5.
