Cuba: An African Odyssey
A film and discussion
Friday, January 10, 7:30 pm
chapters in Cuba’s long
history of support to liberation struggles in Africa are brought to life in the
2008 documentary film Cuba,
An African Odyssey.
The film describes Cuba’s internationalist missions in which hundreds
of thousands of volunteers—combatants and military trainers, as well as
doctors, nurses, teachers, and construction workers—gave decisive aid to
struggles in Africa against colonialism,
neocolonialism, and apartheid.
The three-hour film is
divided into two parts. Part 1, which we will be viewing, covers 1961-1975 and
highlights Cuba’s role in Algeria, Congo, Mozambique, and Guinea-Bissau.
film will be followed by a short presentation and discussion.
