Will the Real Terrorists Please Stand UP
Saul Landau’s latest film
chronicles half a century of hostile US-Cuba relations by telling the story of the Cuban five - intelligence agents sent to penetrate Cuban exile terrorist groups in Miami and now serving long prison sentences in US jails (in CO, CA, FL, TX, WI).


The film highlights decades of US-backed assassinations, terrorism and sabotage against the Cuban people. In the film, viewers see leading terrorists, now in their 80s, recounting their deeds, and Cuban state security officials explaining why they infiltrated agents into violent Miami exile groups.Features fascinatiing archival footage and a rare recorded interview from prison with one of the Cuban 5.

Luis Posada Carriles has had a horrifyingly prolific career, including participating in the Bay of Pigs invasion, blowing up Cubana Flight 455 and its 73 passengers,and planting a series of bombs in Havana hotels that killed one and injured 11. He has dodged justice numerous times, always slipping by on his CIA connections  … Landau explores the sordid history of U.S. support for violent counter-revolutionaries and regime change in Cuba, explaining why someone like Carriles could end up inside the United States.” ~ Zach Kreinik
