Documentary about Fidel Castro, covering 40 years of Cuban Revolution. Rare Fidel Castro footage: he appears swimming with a bodyguard, visiting his childhood home and school, playing with his friend Nelson Mandela, meeting kid Elián Gonzalez, and celebrating his birthday with the Buena Vista Social Club group.

I was truly fascinated by this film. We have always been taught that Fidel Castro was an evil dictator. I remember hearing about him in the 1960's and formed an image in my young mind that never left until I saw this film. What an eye-opener! I think it should be shown in schools and that every adult who cares about this country should see it also. Why does our country teach us to hate? We have this pretentious, hypocritical image of ourselves that we are the "melting pot", and we are generous to other countries and open-minded and all the other garbage we erroneously believe is true. Good grief. What is wrong with the U.S.?
