U.S. films flood Havana festival
HAVANA – Washington’s trade embargo bars almost all Americans from coming to Cuba – but it can’t keep U.S. films out.
Twenty-one full-length U.S. movies and 22 experimental American shorts are being shown as part of Havana’s international film festival, which began Tuesday and runs through Dec. 14 at 23 movie theatres and video clubs across the city.
Will apparently forgot that castro’s thugs choose which films are allowed in Cuba, not the American government. All the U.S. films portray some segment of America in a bad light, for example, Brian De Palmas’ U.S. military bashing “Redacted,” or Vivien Lesnik Weisman’s exile bashing “The Man of Two Havanas.”
Message to Will: it’s not the U.S. censoring the media in Cuba.
