1) Progressive film night

Sunday September 29, 2013 6-9:30 p.m.

Cuba: An African Odyssey is a brilliantly executed documentary on  
Cuban involvement in Africa from the 1960s to the 1980's.  It's a two- 
dvd package, the first dealing mainly with Congo in the early 60s,  
the second with Cuba's intervention in Angola in the 70s and 80s.   
The director Jihan El-Tahri includes interviews with many of the  
power players involved, from Fidel Castro to Pik Botha.  It includes  
fabulous archival footage, in particular of the Congo at the time of  
Lumumba's assassination.  Then the CIA station chief Larry Devlin  
puts his version on the record and the film documents Che Guevara's  
involvement in the Eastern Congo.
