Listen to Landau’s interview on KPFK’s Uprising with Sonali Kolhatkar.
Directed by Emmy Winner Saul Landau, “Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up” shows that US-backed violence against Cuba continued for decades. Some Bay of Pigs participants and the most well-known terrorists appear on camera to boast of or re-evaluate their activities over the years. Orlando Bosch, Jose Basulto, Luis Posada Carriles and Antonio Veciana discuss assassinations and other actions they took to bring down the Revolutionary government. The new film, featuring Danny Glover, Cuba’s top counter spy and Fidel Castro himself (filmed recently) is combined with fascinating archival footage and a rare recorded interview from prison with one of the Cuban 5. These men are serving long sentences in US prisons for trying to stop terrorism against tourist sites in their country.
Saul Landau has produced over forty films. He has received numerous awards, including an Emmy with Jack Willis for “Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang”, the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award, the George Polk Award for Investigative Reporting, the First Amendment Award, and the Bernardo O’Higgins award from the Chilean government for his human rights work. He is a senior fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies.
This event is organized by Cinema Libre Studio and co-sponsored by the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five and the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law with endorsements from Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, El Rescate, Office of the Americas, Law Offices of R.
