Looking for Fidel
- Rated NR
- Genre: Special Interest-Politics
- Release Date: 4/26/2011
For the first time since his government cracked down last year, imprisoning scores of dissidents and even executing three hijackers, Fidel Castro speaks out on why Cuba has dealt so harshly with those it considers a threat. Academy Award winning director and producer Oliver Stone returned to Cuba in April 2003 to interview Castro, asking hard-hitting questions - questions that up to now Castro has avoided answering personally. "Looking for Fidel" includes provocative conversations between Stone and Castro in which the Cuban leader offers his views about the state of the world, President Bush, the war in Iraq and other major international issues. Whether or not you accept Fidel Castro¦s world view, Oliver Stone's in-depth, tough but fair portrait of this highly controversial world leader helps to illuminate Cuba's unique and complicated place in the world. Is Castro a moral leader defending his small island against a superpower? Is he an ironfisted tyrant who can tolerate no criticism? Is the truth somewhere in between?
