Fidel Castro is a new documentary on the controversial and charismatic dictator who has confounded American presidents from Eisenhower to Bush. Filmmaker Adriana Bosch, a native of Cuba, where she remained a decade after the revolution, unflinchingly explores the leader who has been despised as a dictator and lionized as a champion of social justice. Interviewing exiles, defectors, foreign policy experts, and even Castro?s daughter, Bosch delves into Fidel?s accomplishments and failures. After the special preview screening, a panel of scholars will assess Castro?s impact on the latter half of the twentieth century.
