Rate this:
He has survived U.S. hostility, an invasion, several CIA assassination attempts and an economic embargo. His face, with its trademark beard, has become an iconic image worldwide, yet the man himself remains an enigma to all but a few. Fidel Castro, from the PBS American Experience collection, attempts to answer a singular question - what really happened in Cuba under the rule of Fidel Castro? Through interviews with relatives, friends, fellow rebel leaders, Bay of Pigs veterans, and human rights activists, the program constructs an intimate and revealing portrait of one of the most resilient leaders in history. Their interwoven observations are brought to life against a backdrop of vivid and revealing images as the film tells the tragic story of a nation who saw a messiah in just a man.
