The Last Communist


Episode Info

With the fall of the hammer and sickle of the Soviet Union, today's democratic society is a global community that deals within the workings of a free enterprise system. That is, except for a lone holdout located on a tropical island just off the coast of Florida. The nation is Cuba, the man is Fidel Castro, and he alone is "the last communist." Brought to video by PBS, Frontline: The Last Communist dives into the life and times of this controversial leader of Cuba -- from his political start as leader of the rebel guerillas who sparked the Cuban revolution to his continued rule into the 21st century, where he remains defiant, still thumbing his nose at world opinion.
