News and documentary footage detail the life and times of the controversial political figure.
The Fidel Castro Tapes is a film that takes viewers on a journey like none other. This program uses only news and documentary footage -- past and present -- to detail the life and times of one of the most controversial political figures of the 20th Century. There is no narration in this film and no interviews. Instead, The Fidel Castro Tapes relies solely on the words of journalists who covered the major events in Castro's life to tell the story. It is a unique approach, one that gives the viewer a chance to experience the life and times of Cuba's leader as if they were actually living through them.
