‘I am the other Cuba’: Italian documentary on Laura Pollan captures a mysterious ‘accident’ on film
Italian filmmaker Pierantonio Maria Micciarelli traveled to Cuba to film a documentary on Laura Pollan and the Ladies in White. After meeting with Laura and the rest of the peaceful opposition women in Cuba, Micciarelli made this interesting and profound statement (my translation):
"When I was young, I was fascinated by the myth of the revolution, but being in Cuba, I saw another face and another reality."
In the following video there is a clip from Micciarelli's documentary where he is interviewing Laura Pollan in the backseat of a car as they travel down the road. Suddenly, the car mysteriously swerves and crashes, all while the camera is rolling. Although no one was hurt in the accident, the driver tells Micciarelli he has serious doubts what had just happened was an "accident." When asked if he thought the accident was provoked, the driver responded:
"It was deliberate, I have no doubt. Above all, it is a message they are sending. Perhaps the purpose was not homicide, but if they all died... oh well."
