Santa Fe Premiere: Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up

August 22, 2011 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

dvd coverEmmy- and George Polk Award-winning filmmaker Saul Landau and Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler tell the hidden story of 50 years of American terrorism against the Cuban people. At the center of their film is the story of the five Cuban anti-terrorists who tried to prevent subversive actions against their country and who have been unjustly locked in U.S. jails for 12 years.

Will The Real Terrorists Please Stand Up shows that US-backed violence against Cuba continued for decades. Some Bay of Pigs participants and the most well-known terrorists appear on camera to boast of or re-evaluate their activities over the years. Orlando Bosch, Jose Basulto, Luis Posada Carriles and Antonio Veciana discuss assassinations and other actions they took to bring down the Castro government.

The new film, featuring Danny Glover, Cuba’s top counter spy and Fidel Castro himself (filmed recently) is combined with fascinating archival footage and a rare recorded interview from prison with one of the Cuban 5. The five men are serving long sentences in US prisons for trying to stop terrorism against tourist sites in their country. After the film, Saul Landau will lead a discussion with the audience.
