A special screening will be held to launch the 40th anniversary year
of the Center for Cuban Studies, in collaboration with The Center for
Public Scholarship, at the New School on Saturday, December 3, 2011.
Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up? chronicles half a century of hostile US-Cuba
relations by telling the story of the “the Cuban five,” intelligence agents sent to penetrate
Cuban exile terrorist groups in Miami and now serving long prison sentences (one was
recently released on probation after serving 13 years). The film highlights decades of
assassinations and sabotage at first backed then ignored by the very government that
launched a “war against terrorism.” In the film, viewers see leading terrorists, now in
their 80s, recounting their deeds, and Cuban state security officials explaining why they
infiltrated agents into violent Miami exile groups.
The film, featuring Danny Glover and 84 year old Fidel Castro in key scenes, raises and
tries to answer the question: what did Cuba do to deserve such hostile treatment? It
traces key events from the Bay of
Pigs and Cuban Missile Crisis,
through multiple assassination
attempts on Fidel Castro’s life. This
documentary reveals a story of
violence that also echoed on the
streets of Washington DC, New York
and especially Miami where Cuban
American critics of the bombers
and shooters also wound up dead.
