In 1959, when Fidel
Castro led a ragtag revolutionary army which miraculously overthrew the
corrupt regime of Fulgencio Batista, he was hailed as a hero around the
world, though many of the same people who praised him soon became his enemies
when Castro installed a Communist government and entered into an alliance
with the Soviet Union. Castro seemed to particularly enjoy baiting the United
States of America (with his island only 90 miles from the Florida coast), but
despite attempts on his life by the CIA, the enmity of a number of American
presidents, the fall of the Soviet Union, and an economic stranglehold that
threatens to starve his people, Castro remains a tenacious and charismatic
leader who rules Cuba with an iron hand, though the man behind the image is
known to only a trusted few.
The American Experience: Fidel Castro is a
documentary produced for PBS which profiles both the public leader and the
private man, featuring interviews with family members, friends, political
associates, writers, and activists who offer their perspectives on one of the
most controversial leaders of the 20th century.
