Description

The cameraman in Cuba and the Cameraman is the indefatigable documentary filmmaker Jon Alpert, the director of the movie. The film begins inside a car in Havana in 2016, as the death of Fidel Castro is announced on state radio.

Jon Alpert’s movie is a personal examination of the ways in which Cuba changed and did not change over the course of 45 years of visiting and filming the stories of Cuban families; even accompanying Fidel Castro on one memorable trip to the United States. Alpert, a pioneering journalist and filmmaker, has reported from places like Vietnam, Cambodia, Iran, China, and Afghanistan and has made films for broadcast networks PBS and HBO.
