Waiting for Fidel & Zolzhenitsyn's Children Are Making A Lot Of Noise In Paris
Waiting For Fidel
Waiting for Fidel is not the film that Michael Rubbo was expected to make when he went to Cuba in 1974 with Newfoundland's fiery socialist ex-premiere Joey Smallwood and Canadian millionaire Geoff Sterling, to film an interview between Smallwood and Fidel Castro. The interview never took place. Nevertheless, Rubbo made a film, which New York Times critic David Denby described as “a highly inventive and at times excruciatingly funny document about self-deception and the limitations of curiosity.” See Steve Dobi's interview with Michael Rubbo reprinted in this month's feature article for the story behind this film.
