Oliver Stone, Fidel Castro
Academy-Award® winning director Oliver Stone delivers a candid, in-depth conversation with one of the most controversial world leaders of our time, Fidel Castro (who recently passed away at the end of 2016). Stone challenges Castro to explain actions following the execution of three political dissidents who attempted to hijack a ferry to the United States in April 2003. Castro's response and his actions were condemned worldwide, further isolating Cuba. Stone was given unprecedented access, interviewing not only Castro, but many of the prisoners, their wives, leading dissidents and human rights advocates?all of whom express their views forcefully in the emotionally charged environment today's Cuba. Whether or not you accept Castro´s world view, Stone´s tough but fair portrait helps to illuminate Cuba's unique and complicated place in the world.
