  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Cuba: The Forgotten Revolution This documentary tells the virtually unknown story of Cuban revolutionaries Frank Pais and Juan Antonio Echeverria. Working largely independently from each other, these young men - a school teacher and architecture student, respectively - played critical roles in the eventual overthrow of dictator Fulgencio Batista y Zaldivar, although their names seldom appear alongside their more famous contemporaries, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Scholar Lillian Guerra, of Yale and Florida State University, explains: "It is as if we told the tale of the American Revolution as solely Washington's story, leaving out Franklin, Jefferson, Adams and others."
    New scholarship and recently accessed footage challenge the prevailing view - in part manufactured and perpetuated by Che Guevara - that Castro's army of 200 guerillas single-handedly defeated tens of thousands of Batista's professional soldiers and liberated the people of Cuba. In actuality, Pais and Echeverria's city-based insurgencies in Santiago and Havana held the key to generating popular support for resistance and undermining the authority of Batista and his secret police. Both Pais and Echeverria rivaled Castro in popularity and power during the height of the Revolution yet neither man lived to see the movement succeed. A close associate reportedly gunned down Pais in the street; Echeverria died in a daring raid on the palace. < br>This film highlights the complexities inherent in revolutions and examines the shaping (and reshaping) of the final historical record through exclusive interviews and archival stock footage. Cuban revolution participants and observers, family members of the men, Americans who fought alongside Castro and Guevara, and a former CIA agent responsible for smuggling secret radio equipment to the rebels share their experiences from that era, while leading historians consider the newly revealed information.

    Daring Journey: from Immigration to Education Narrated by actor Peter Coyote, this documentary details the challenges and risks four individuals - Luis B., Sergio Garcia, Janet Robles and Ruben Robles, Sr. - are willing to take as they cross the border from Mexico to the United States in search of the "American Dream." It shows the human element to the often-debated and polarizing issue of immigration. Using interviews, re-enactments and archival footage, it offers a first-hand account of the struggles each of the four illegal immigrants face as they try to earn a living, seek a higher education for themselves and their children, and attempt to achieve a better way of life. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
