Cuba: The People Part 1

Cuba: The People Part 1
1:00:00 | 1974

Categories: War, Politics

The first American television documentary shot in Cuba since the revolution, Cuba: The People is a comprehensive view of Cuban life under socialism.

The warmth, unity and spirit of the Cuban people is reflected in this program as well as the difficulties they encounter. Travelling all over the country, DCTV focused on the average families and their daily lives; the development of state farms, the nationalized factories, the now empty department stores, the crowded bars, and the streets of Havana where the mini-skirt reigns.

The program details how the Cuban revolution is trying to cope with the problems of housing, medical care, and education. Issues relating to human rights, freedom of the press, and religion are examined through visits to the national newspaper, a Catholic church, and Havana's Jewish Center.
