4 Cuba documentaries while waiting for the new promotion for a Cubacel phone number

Before talking about how to send free credit to a Cubacel phone number (or more) this November, we’ve got 4 amazing documentaries to share with you. They are about Cuba or related to the Caribbean and they will leave you eyes wide open. So, while waiting for the next week’s Cubacel promotion, Cuban fellows abroad here are some insights about streets of Havana in a way you won’t see on CNN, the US health system and the uninsured, the real Che Guevara, and the history and the present of sugar cartels. All these may trigger some interesting talk to your folks or friends.

Oh, and since we mentioned the next “Cubacel promocion” for you, dear Cubans out there, save the dates: November 23-28. All top ups on or from MobileRecharge app greater than 20 CUC will add free extra credit to your top ups to Cubacel phone number from abroad. Automatically, of course.

Bye Bye Havana. 8.53 rating says it all…

bye bye havana documentary

Some time ago, we’ve collected opinions of foreigners about Cuba in this article What foreigners love about Cuba. This documentary took our talk to the next level, but in a more complex way…

Those who watched it label it as a great journalistic attempt to have a real walk on the streets of Havana, something the world doesn’t see on CNN. Beyond patriotism, the film, a co-production of 2010, makes room for what Cubans really want now.

… the disintegrating roads and toxin-belching jalopies, its plethora of armed policemen and sun-bleached billboards espousing their pat, revolutionary slogans, it attracts over a million pink-skinned, camera-toting, snack-munching mojito-swilling tourists each year. . . Cubans want other choices, other points of view, and they can’t wait any longer. (


Sicko documentary

A very deep and critical film… After exploring Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, the activist filmmaker Michael Moore turns his bold focus towards health care in the United States and the uninsured and those who must deal with abuse from insurance companies, against the huge profits of the pharmaceutical industry. The talk in the comments is also most interesting and provocative…

Obviously the point of going to Cuba had 2 points. Firstly a practically 3rd world poor country could provide health care to it’s citizens. Also US citizens have been told how bad Cuba is and Castro and blah blah. Not sure how bad things are in Cuba but they have better health care than the US! (Nathan on

I cried when I watched this – I am so lucky to live in Australia and get access to free health care. (Michelle Anderson

The true story of Che Guevara

The true story of Che Guevara

Watch it on

An idealist, a terrorist, or what else, a saint or an anti-hero? This is a complex approach on the person who “ordered the execution of countless human beings while in charge of the notorious La Cabaña prison in Havana, who terrorized Cuban society and who denied freedom to thousands of citizens whom he considered” (

Don’t miss the comments as well, the talk is most profound and analytical.

Big Sugar

Big Sugar documentary

Watch it on

Women from the Carribean go back looking for their ancestors trace in the sugar slavery time. But guess what, the film shows how the sugar slavery is still a business in the Dominican Republic, based on expats from Haiti and other places. Unbelievable and sad!
