The feature film will be shown at 6:00 p.m., local time, in Hall A of that Buenos Aires-based institution, as part of a program of events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between the two nations.
The movie is based on the diary of Elsita’s grandmother, which contains her historic and emotional experiences from the triumph of the Cuban Revolution on January 1, 1959, to March 5, 1960.
That was the date of the funerals of the victims of the sabotage on the French ship La Coubre in the port of Havana, an incident that resulted in about 100 dead and 400 injured.
The Cuban Government has repeatedly denounced the responsibility of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the explosions as part of many attempts to intimidate citizens and overthrow the revolutionary process.
In the light of the attempts to terrorize the people into desisting from the newly initiated path, Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro (1926-2016) urged Cubans to resist and fight off until the last drop of blood, which was summarized in the motto “Homeland or Death.”
