From the Daily Dot

This doc provides an on-the-ground humanistic version of Cuban progress, or lack thereof, through over 45 years and a thousand hours of film in the making. Director Jon Alpert's began visiting Cuba in 1972 as a documentarian taking advantage of new video technology, trying to see if Castro's socialist revolution was, in fact, creating better lives for Cubans. Visit after visit, the investigative reporter entrenched himself in the country's culture, filming the ordinary Cubans and eventually earning rare favor with Castro himself.
