A documentary about the Cuban revolution, told through interviews with activists, workers, students, and others. Co-director Adolfas Mekas was the brother of Jonas Mekas, a film critic, filmmaker, and essentially father figure of the avant-garde New American Cinema of the 1960s, which in turn spawned the underground film movement that continued into the 1970s.

Shot on location in Cuba.
