THREE CUBANS 1965
An Exile - 
A Revolutionary  -  A Worker
Class displacement in the Cuban Revolution


"... eminently fair and realistic look at Cuba"  - Jack E. Anderson, Miami Herald
"Neither the Cuban nor U.S. authorities ... influenced the film. ... students evenly divided about whether it was
pro or anti - Castro...one of the best films available"
- Jane M. Loy, History Dept., Univ. of Mass.

In 1963 & 1964 Robert Carl Cohen became the first US filmmaker authorized by both the
US State Dept. & Cuban Foreign Ministry to film the daily lives of upper, middle and lower
economic class Cubans. Returning to the US, Cohen interviewed an upper economic class exile who, his aged parents remaining in Cuba, requested anonymity.  The film's production had to overcome obstacles such as Kodak's selling the Producer defective raw stock & the loss of the work print from an insured Railway Express shipment.  Its 1965 screening as
"Three Faces of Cuba" on over 100 National Educational TV (NET) affiliated stations led to violent protests by anti-Castro exiles, hearings before federal agencies, & non-inclusion by the NET in the usual distribution of its programs to the schools.  Despite having permits from both the State & Treasury Depts., Cohen's 1963 through 1971 tax returns were audited by the Internal Revenue Service; which revealed no liability.  Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) files in1975 revealed possible CIA influence in NET's refusal to distribute the filmIn July 2015 Cuba and the USA reestablished diplomatic relations.
THREE CUBANS
provides one of the best documentations of the early effects of Castro's
revolution on the people of Cuba.
