Film about life in Cuba before & during Castro's revolution (runs May 12-18, SF)

This film about pre-Castro Havana is reputedly critical of the revolution as well as of the dictator Fulgencia Batista that it toppled, and portrays Che Guevara as the odious killer he really was. Filmmaker Andy Garcia left Cuba at age 5 himself and publicly spoke out for Elian Gonzalez remaining in the United States rather than being sent back to live under Castro.

  Should be worth checking out and supporting while it's in theaters. Let me know or post an email if you'd like to go see it; maybe we can organize an LP outing.
