To some an icon of resistance and to others the very face of dictatorial oppression, Fidel Castro was one of the most provocative political figures of the 20th century.  THE FIDEL CASTRO TAPES chronicles how his drive and charisma catapulted him to power in Cuba and how he used these traits to maintain control of his country for nearly five decades and capture the attention of the world.

Instead of telling his story through interviews, the program relies solely on media reports, rare images and recordings to document Castro’s turbulent life. In addition, the program features footage obtained from several Cuban archives.

By using an “in the moment” style of storytelling, THE FIDEL CASTRO TAPES gives viewers a sense of being present during the most significant moments of Castro’s career — and gives remarkable insight into his personality.  The film details how Castro gained control of his island nation and  how he tried — and failed — to win the friendship of the United States, showing why relations with the U.S. deteriorated as it became obvious that many members of Castro’s ruling party were Communist.
