Cuba An African Odyssey is a historical documentary produced by Jihan El-Tahri, a Franco-Egyptian writer, director and producer. This award winning piece describes how Cuba, under the leadership of Fidel Castro supported Africa’s liberation movements. The Soviet Union wanted to extend its influence in the continent; the U.S. wanted to take advantage of African’s natural resources; former European empires felt their grip on the area weaken; and newly formed African nations fought to defend their recently won independence.

This is an insightful and inspirational documentary to watch.
