The director likes to refer to the Cuban government as a regime and Cuba: "it's actually a dictatorship".
This is far from reality and just plain stupid. He then goes on to describe how amazing the place, people and crew were. If its a dictatorship, how could this be possible? Apparently only capitalism can create art, freedom and film? Total bullshit attitude.
The film is supposed to be about privilege? The director sounds like he's up his own backside. By his own admission apparently coming from a 'white' town somewhere.
Why use this language to describe Cuba - as if the US is some kind of system/empire/imperialism with which he can stand in his ivory tower and look down on what Cuba is achieving every year it fights to build its socialist way.
Never forget - the US is blockading Cuba's economy (YES even today) and tried to invade it in the 60s (bay of pigs- playa giron) - why? What did Cuba do to deserve this? Why would the US blockade a country - wouldn't this harm 'freedom'?
In fact Cuba is a society far more advanced than the US.
And yes before you jump to attack me - Ive been to Cuba, know Cubans and studied the system for about 8 years.
