Ambassador, director present Cuban social justice film

Cuba's ambassador to Canada to take in screening

Intelligence agents. Terrorist exiles. Assassination. Sabotage.

Together these are the makings of a blockbuster Hollywood film, and in fact are the basis of the documentary, Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up?, which includes appearances by actor Danny Glover and Fidel Castro.

The film will be shown at St. John the Divine Anglican Church on Oct. 6 at 7 p.m., with director Saul Landau and Cuba’s ambassador to Canada, Teresita de Jesús Vicente Sotolongo, in attendance.

The film tells the story of Cuban intelligence agents, known as the Cuban Five, who were sent to penetrate Cuban exile groups in Miami, and were imprisoned for their actions.

The presentation, sponsored by the Victoria Friends of Cuba, happens in the church hall, located at 925 Balmoral Rd. Admission is by donation. For details, please visit victoriacubafund.wordpress.com.
