Soy Cuba

Soy Cuba: A Cuban, communist propaganda film directed by a Russian, financed by Russia, shot during the Cuban Missile Crisis and embraced by Martin Scorsese 30 years later. A glamorized - yet beautiful - view of a revolution and a communist state that remains a foe as it swaps Castros. (I'd hoped to post the incredible night club scene from Julian Schnabel's Before Night Falls, but the YouTube selections focused mainly on Johnny Depp in drag).
