Synopsis

Nobody Listened
Despite a well-established record of mass torture and imprisonment of thousands of law-abiding citizens for political reasons, it sometimes appears that the regime of Ferdinand Castro in Cuba has gotten away with its crimes. So completely is this the case that, to leftists all over the world, the name "Castro" still has a heroic ring to it. Consequently it has become almost taboo to discuss the horrific misdeeds of the "hero's" regime, but the makers of this documentary intend to set the record straight, and in a series of interviews with survivors of Castro's prisons, they reveal many surprising facts about the dictator's perfidious regime. Many of those interviewed were formerly high officials in Cuba's communist government who fell from favor. They know (literally) where the bodies are buried. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Guaguasi
Rather than dramatize Castro's Cuban revolution as a central theme, this film made by Cubans in exile focuses on the disintegration of a young peasant's morality once he joins the revolutionary forces. The naive peasant was expecting adventure but before his stint in the military has ended, he is a trained killer, whether he is fully aware of it or not. When he takes up with a dance-hall woman in Havana and turns to drugs and alcohol, his decline accelerates, putting both his lover and his friends at the mercy of his slipping hold on stability. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
