Director Saul Landau will be here to present his newest documentary "Will the Real Terrorists Please Stand Up?"
Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up? chronicles half a century of hostile US-Cuba
relations by telling the story of the “the Cuban five,” intelligence agents sent to penetrate Cuban exile terrorist groups in Miami and now serving long prison sentences (one was recently released on probation after serving 13 years). The film highlights decades of assassinations and sabotage at first backed then ignored by the very government that launched a “war against terrorism.”
In the film, viewers see leading terrorists, now in
their 80s, recounting their deeds, and Cuban state security officials explaining why they infiltrated agents into violent Miami exile groups.
The film, featuring Danny Glover and 84 year old Fidel Castro in key scenes, raises and tries to answer the question: what did Cuba do to deserve such hostile treatment?
