WIN 'The Fidel Castro Tapes' on DVD ... NOW!
The story of this charismatic leader is told from childhood. One of seven children, young Fidel attended Jesuit school. In 1952 he ran for Congress but before the actual election, Fulgencio Batista came to power. This is when Castro began organizing the resistance movement that some years later would oust Batista. He also served a year in prison prior to that triumph.
If the man could live forever there's little doubt he would rule Cuba in perpetuity. Of course there's anti-Castro Cubans, but many have left the country while those who remain must of necessity keep quiet for fear of harsh reprisals. Yet it's remarkable that a small island nation has a one-man socialist government for more than half a century that has outlived even Mother Russia (USSR). Fidel Castro, now well into his 80s, remains as its hero and standard bearer, even in supposed retirement.
The style of this documentary is "quick edit," with the average film clip on screen for three seconds. But when more time is given to a single moment, such as a passionate Fidel harangue, therein lie the show's highlights. His oratorical skills were second to none, as we see here in many examples.
If you would like to win a copy of this truly incredible new DVD, just answer this question about the man himself: In 1947, Castro joined the socialist Party of the Cuban People. Founded by veteran politician Eduardo Chibás what was it's actual name in Cuba?! [And yes, spelling counts for everything here!].
