This biographical documentary takes a rousing, invigorating, emotional look at one of the most complex and endearing figures of 20th Century global politics, Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Through a mix of archival footage and talking heads (which include writers, celebrities, and personal friends such as author Gabriel Garcia Marquez), Castro emerges as a warm human being as well as a true revolutionary. Dealing with everything from Castro's youth to his overthrow of the Batista regime right up to the Elian Gonzales debacle, the film portrays Fidel as an inspiring, natural leader who has never lost sight of his dream, and who has helped many countries over the years overthrow their own oppressive governments. Moving moments with Nelson Mandela and others attest to his status as a third world hero. Some viewers may find this all to be rather biased, as very little screen time is given to issues such as his notorious system of political oppression. Most, however, will simply relish this hitherto unavailable opportunity to see a portrait of Castro unmarred by the demonizing brush of U.S. propaganda. Estela Bravo, a longtime resident of both Havana and Manhattan, directed utilizing rare access to Cuba's archival film libraries.
