Nobody Is Still Listening!

In 1984 Nestor Almendros, one of Hollywood’s greatest cinematographers,
directed a film about his native Cuba – “Nobody Listened”(Nadie
escuchaba ) (1984). He also directed a film about Castro’s treatment of
gays the same year, “Improper Conduct” (Mauvaise conduite). The first
film is especially poignant since it shows how Western leftists have
failed to stand up against Castro for running a country as totalitarian
as Nazi Germany or Stalin’s USSR. Now 20 years latter the films are more
important than ever because Castro imprisoned many dissenters including
librarians and journalists on the day the US invaded Iraq – March 18,
2003. You can purchase a copy of the film from Direct Cinema Ltd on the
web for $29.95 for home video and $95 for institutional use.
