Come and see the acclaimed film, FIDEL!, which chronicles a unique moment in Cuban history. Made ten-years after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution by the late acclaimed film-maker & scholar Saul Landau, FIDEL! documents a unique moment in the history of Cuba and the trajectory of the Cuban Revolution. Granted unprecedented access, Landau filmed & interviewed Fidel Castro as he criss-crossed Cuba, visiting farmers, schools, community elders, playing baseball etc. Most interesting and poignant is Fidel Castro's discussion and elaboration of the philosophy, politics and history undergirding the Cuban Revolution.

The late Saul Landau was an internationally-known scholar, author, commentator, and filmmaker on U.S. foreign policy.  Landau's most widely praised achievements are the over forty films he produced on social, political and historical issues, and worldwide human rights, for which he won the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award, the George Polk Award for Investigative Reporting, and the First Amendment Award, as well as an Emmy for Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang. Landau wrote over ten books, short stories and poems. He received an Edgar Allen Poe Award for Assassination on Embassy Row, a report on the 1976 murders of Chilean Ambassador Orlando Letelier and his colleague, Ronni Moffitt.
