University of Maryland Screening: Will The Real Terrorist Please Stand Up
April 18, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The latest and cutting edge film by Saul Landau exploring in-depth US-Cuba politics through the story of the Cuban 5, will be screened for the University of Maryland community followed by a compelling panel discussion. Landau is an internationally-known scholar, author, commentator, filmmaker, and fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies.
His film, Will The Real Terrorist Please Stand Up documents the history involving the CIA, violence, and the five Cubans serving long sentences in U.S. prisons. The film features an interview with Gerardo Hernandez, one of the Cuban Five who is currently serving life imprisonment in Victorville Maximum Security Prison for “conspiracy to commit espionage.” Landau also interviews Luis Posada Carriles, Orlando Bosch, and others who have acknowledged perpetrating acts of terrorism in Cuba as “freedom fighters.” Delightful surprises are appearances in the film by Fidel Castro and Danny Glover.
Co-sponsors: Institute for Policy Studies, International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5, Nyumburu Cultural Center, and DC Metro Coalition to Free the Cuban Five.
These events are free and part of 5 Days for The Cuban 5.
