Estela Bravo's "Fidel: The Untold Story" features prominent Americans including Muhammed Ali, Ted Turner, Alice Walker, Harry Belafonte, Sydney Pollack, Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez and former and current U.S. government figures including Arthur Schlesinger, Ramsey Clark, Wayne Smith and Congressman Charles Rangel -- offering a unique political and historical viewpoint on Castro and the long-standing U.S. embargo against Cuba. The film includes exclusive interviews with Fidel Castro offering a rare glimpse into his life as Bravo's camera captures various personal and political moments with Castro swimming with bodyguards, visiting his childhood home, joking with his friend Nelson Mandela, meeting Elian Gonzalez, and celebrating his birthday with the Buena Vista Social Club. "Fidel: The Untold Story" provides a compelling new perspective of this powerful and charismatic figure.
