In '60s film, a glimpse of Cuba's architecture
That astounding, unbroken camera shot is the stuff of cinema legend, to which sequences like the opening scene in Boogie Nights and the nightclub entrance in GoodFellas pay homage.

"The film ("I am Cuba" in English) was designed to serve as a dramatic reminder of why in the eyes of the filmmakers the Castro revolution was needed and, as such, is one of the finest straight propaganda films made. But the movie wasn't much of a hit in the USSR or Cuba and was seldom seen in this country, given the film's anti-American sentiment. Fortunately, Directors Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese rescued the film in 1995 and restored it.(My former Sun-Times colleague Roger Ebert reviewed the film for its 1995 re-release.)"
The Castro revolution was a 100% FAILURE and living in Miami under the gvmt of those who hate Castro (rightfully so) I see ZERO political and police standards and suspect that Cuba was in its prime under Italian mob rule because I do not think we Cubans are capable of real gvmt.
This is the general rule with Miami Cuban politicos -
"The Cubans have proven repeatedly that they cannot govern without turmoil and rampant corruption. The once pristine Miami metropolitan area, rich in American history, is much too important to relinquish to those only interested in enriching themselves and giving nothing in return."

La Mafia en Cuba en contuvernio con el HP de Batista solo controlaban algunos casinos en la Habana!La influencia de la Mafia en Cuba era minima,cuento de caminos magnificado por los izquierdistas de extrema izquierda de Hollywood para darle foclore a sus peliculas!

Chico mas que nadie ,tu sabes como somos nosotros las ratas, somos sucia, fea, cobarde y mentirosas .
Many refugees were discovered to be undesirables; for example, criminals or mental patients who had been released from Cuban prisons or other institutions. The exact number of undesirables that arrived in the boatlift is disputed.
The most undesirable was a young rata named Jose. To this day authorities look for him and his picture has been posted all over calle ocho.
Experts think he is able to hide his identity and morph at will.
“Its all in the mind..or is it?”
