Film on the horrors of Cuba’s gulag to premier at the Miami Film Festival in March

See trailer below. “Plantados” will undoubtedly upset many in Hollywood, as well as at the White House, El Niuyortain, and most college campuses.

(“Plantados” were Cuban political prisoners who refused to wear the same uniform as criminals and rejected all attempts to “re-educate” them.)

The film will premiere on March 12 at the Miami Film Festival

  1. It may not upset them, since they can always ignore it, or dismiss it as “hate fantasies,” or say it’s fake.

  2. From what I can see of the trailer, it looks well made. I understand that some Cuban millionaire from Spain financed the movie. Let’s see if the film festivals accept it. Years ago, an anti-castro film, “Bitter Sugar” was not shown at the New York Film Festival because of its anti-castro slant.

    • The same thing happened in 2017 with the film Santa y Andrés, even though it was about repression of homosexuals, not political prisoners. After it was censored in Cuba, the Havana Film Festival in New York (surprise!) excluded it from its awards competition with extremely lame (read disingenuous) reasoning. The festival director, Carole Rosenberg, said, the film “really does not fit the mission of our organization,” which is to “build bridges.” You can do the math as well as I can.
