Bye Bye Havana. 8.53 rating says it all…
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 cinepobre.com 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. (TopDocumentaryFilms.com)
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…
The true story of Che Guevara
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” (TopDocumentaryFilms.com)
Don’t miss the comments as well, the talk is most profound and analytical.
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!
