Wonderful Documentary on Cuba
17 October 2001 | by (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

While taking film in university I had the good fortune of having this documentary recommended to me. The director Michael Rubbo goes to Cuba to interview Fidel Castro. The meeting never occurs, hence the title. While most directors may have scrapped the project Rubbo instead creates a interesting and eye-opening documentary on Cuba. The film doesn't take a pro- or anti- Castro stance. Instead it shows you how life is lived on both sides of the fence. Highly recommended documentary for both those interested in this particular film style and interested in being better educated on Cuba. Waiting for Fidel rates an 8 out of 10.
