While this is a good and informative documentary it has a few issues. It's a little one sided and shows the Castro brothers in bad light. It also doesn't judge the Bay of Pigs invasion which was a direct American attack on an independent nation and it's President to protect their corporate interests. It also doesn't touch on the fact that cuba is one of the most successful socialist countries and has some of the best medical and educational systems worldwide. This is a great documentary but don't expect to learn anything objective about Cuba from it.
