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.

Simply put, whether one is pro Fidel or con Fidel, pro-Cuba or con-Cuba this is the best film on Castro and Cuba done. Without delving into the specific politics of Castro this film demonstrates the impact he has on the political theatre of the Americas, former Soviet Union, the Carribean and Africa. The film goes into his relationship to Che and the alliances he sought with other national leaders that sought their independence, Ho Chi Min, Allende, Bishop, Mandela etc. The only thing this film lacks is an in depth view on just how the revolution overtook Bastista. All those who are interested in history would be best to see this film. Estela Bravo was great in including some of the revolutionary icons of the 60's & 70's, although I question Alice Walker as an interviewer, she really did not add very much to what we might know of Fidel. Contrary to the listing here, Ted Turner and Ali were not really interviews. It would have been better to list Angela Davis who gave more insight.
