The traditional Cuban film festival that the Cuban Embassy celebrates annually in coordination with the "Progresive Film Club" was inaugurated tonight with the presentation of the documentary "Fidel es Fidel" by director Roberto Chile. In this way, a well-deserved tribute was paid to Comandante Fidel on the first anniversary of his physical disappearance.
Among those present was the independent deputy Maureen O'Sullivan, who transferred to Cuban Ambassador Hugo Ramos Milanés his message of solidarity and friendship with the Cuban people and affirmed that he could not fail to be present on an occasion like this. Also there were attending members of the Progresive Film Club, Irish friends and other nationalities, as well as Cuban residents.
Numerous scenes of the documentary that review passages of the life of the Commander in Chief motivated expressions of respect and admiration of the assistants to whom he dedicated all his life to the Revolution and his people. Who embraced the just causes of the peoples of the world, as shown by the scenes of Fidel in Africa, receiving children from Chernobyl, or sharing with Chávez the joy of being able to offer health services to the most needy.
The end of the documentary drew a strong applause from the audience so that there would be no doubt about the presence of the example left by Fidel.
