FLiFF "Tell Me Cuba" - CinemaDave

Oct. 11th, 2006 08:57 pm FLiFF "Tell Me Cuba"


"Tell Me Cuba" is a documentary that could be re
titled "Controversial Cuban Commentary." "Tell Me
Cuba" looks at the American Embargo of Cuba since the
rise of Fidel Castro.

Told in Three Acts, many local news makers
(Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Lincoln Diaz Belart)
are interviewed by Director/Producer Megan Williams.
While "Tell Me Cuba" can be thought provoking at
times, this fact finding documentary suffers from a
subtle liberal bias. America's policies are presented
as killing innocent Cuban babies while Fidel Castro's
worst atrocities seem to be eliminating his political
rivals.

As one of one of my mentors once said, if
there is one detail wrong, then the whole report is
wrong. There is a photograph featuring Presidents
Eisenhower and Kennedy that narrator Gina Gershon
comments on. The narration claims that

“...Eisenhower counseled Kennedy...” on planning the Bay of Pigs Invasion.

Yet, it was a historical fact that
Eisenhower would not talk to Kennedy during the
inauguration in 1961. Perhaps Megan Williams and her
crew tried to fill in the silence of a photograph.
Historians should examine the details the validity of
"Tell Me Cuba" argument. Algo no huele kosher -
something does not smell Kosher.

It is a well-known fact that the Eisenhower administration briefed JFK on the existing plan to invade Cuba.
