Police State Cuba: Nobody Listened - Banned by PBS
Fidel Castro is undoubtedly one of the most controversial figures of the last 100 years. From the era of Eisenhower to that of George W. Bush, Castro has ruled Cuba and maintained extraordinary world attention. NOBODY LISTENED reveals Castro’s brutal methods for sustaining his longevity, and forces us to listen closely to accounts rarely taken seriously before. Former Castro comrades, life-long Communist party leaders, writers, and intellectuals – as well as unrepentant supporters of fallen dictator Fulgencio Batista – appear and testify in gripping detail about the seedy underbelly of Cuba's police state. NOBODY LISTENED is a burning polemic with style to spare. Co-directed by Academy Award®-winning cinematographer Nestor Almendros (DAYS OF HEAVEN, THE LAST METRO), NOBODY LISTENED whirls about and makes its points with style, verve, and wit. It is a story no one can afford to miss. This first ever DVD release includes a special update, created specifically for this edition by co-director Jorge Ulla.
