New Cuban Film: “All Guantánamo is Ours”

June 25, 2016

PE pub (1)The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity will soon be releasing a new film on Cuba that could be a valuable tool for activists in the United States.

All Guantanamo is Ours, a 37 minute film with English subtitles, shows the perspective and sentiment of the Cuban people, in particular those living in the towns around Guantanamo, about the illegal occupation of the U.S. Naval Base. The film is unique in revealing what the occupation looked like before and after the revolution. The protagonists in this documentary are the people living there who with their voices denounce this injustice convinced that one day that territory will be returned to Cuba.

In a recent interview, Josefina Vidal, Ministry of Foreign Relations General Director for the United States explained the significance of Guantanamo. “The occupation of the Naval Base is illegal and it is occupied against the will of the government and the people of Cuba who since 1959 have been demanding its return. That is why until Cuba can recuperate Guantanamo’s total sovereignty and control we will not be able to say that there are normal relations between Cuba and the United States.”

This documentary by filmmaker and journalist Hernando Calvo Ospina has been produced by Resumen Latinoamericano and the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity.  Check out the trailer.

The film will be available in the first part of July.
