Wiley, Charles W.
April 1976
National Review;4/30/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 15, p442
This article compares two documentary films on the politics and government of Cuba under President Fidel Castro's administration in 1976. The Cuban government provided the guide for the production of the documentary films. In this regard, the differences in the content of the films are assessed by the author. The views of the films regarding the prevalence of Communism in Cuba are criticized. Based on a film by Jim Jensen, the nation was substantially less joyous under the political leadership of Castro.
