Cuba’s support to liberation struggles in Africa are brought to life in the new documentary film Cuba, An African Odyssey. From the description:
Directed by Lebanese-born film maker Jihan El-Tahri, the film describes internationalist missions in which hundreds of thousands of Cuban volunteers—combatants and military trainers, as well as doctors, nurses, teachers, and construction workers—gave decisive aid to struggles in Africa against colonialism, neocolonialism, and apartheid.
Che Guevara's most successful student was, of course, the unpromising cue-ball Laurent Kabila.
