Editorial Reviews

Celebrating Life in Union narrated by actor Andy Garcia, is a story of the resilience and brotherhood of a group of former Cuban political prisoners from the Escambray Movement in the 1960’s. They were 17, 18 and 19 year old boys who fought with Fidel Castro against the dictator Fulgencio Batista in Cuba. Later, they fought against Fidel Castro after the resignation of Huber Matos, the third highest-ranking officer of the Fidel Castro revolution. These men received 20 and in some cases 30 years in jail. They are now in their 70’s and 80’s having kept their brotherhood alive in Union City, New Jersey. The documentary premiered this past August at the New York City International Film Festival. It has been nominated as the most inspirational documentary by Doc Miami International Film Festival.

Gladys Bensimon has made an extraordinary film about a group of former Cuban political prisoners from the Cuban Revolution. Narrated by Andy Garcia this is a story that Must be told- and it is told beautifully! Now men, they meet weekly in Union City NJ. We get a most revealing look at the hopes they had in Fidel and the Revolution, which proved so false. Witness this testimony for yourself in this excellent film! Experience the human resilience, community and brotherhood!!!

I never knew much about this side of the Cuban situation....I knew Castro was a monster, but to see how these people were affected and to showcase their absolute strength when they lost EVERYTHING....this was truly eye-opening. Highly recommended. Bravo.
