PRESS RELEASE / PLEASE FORWARD, Jan 21, 2010
Since early 2007 I have been working on my seventh documentary of a series about exposing the American people to the truth about communism in Cuba. This one is about Che. I first presented the proposal to taxpayer-supported PBS, as expected they rejected it. PBS “won’t air a documentary like this,” was the answer given to my advisor in this project. This was not the first time that the "progressives" at PBS reject my projects to educate the American public. Apparently they rather to keep them ignorant about left-wing regimes.
This documentary titled Che: The Other Side Of An Icon. is an exploration of the origins, motivations and resulting actions of Ernesto “Che” Guevara de la Serna. The film profiles the life of the man killed in Bolivia, as well as “Che”, the icon, who lives on today. It presents the real man behind the myth, his legacy and why he has become so popular among the youth, revolutionaries and terrorists of the world.
It explores the dangers of believing in Che's carefully constructed public image, when the facts of his life are anything but saintly. This documentary it is based on studies from various academic sources who worked with him and knew his family in Argentina and Havana --who were intimately acquainted with Che’s personal and political trajectory.
You can see the 3-min. prologue of the Che documentary titled at: http://www.youtube.com/jaums. It appears as a third clip below to the right of my YouTube channel page. When you finish, click on "see all" and all the rest of the clips from my productions open. Use the slider down and click on "CheRangelRojasLago.m2t" and you can see the 3-min segment of the moving interview of Barbara Rangel and her mother Blanca Rojas talking about the execution of Col. Cornelio Rojas by Che Guevara, ending with a comment from late Dr. Armando Lago.
The story Barbara Rangel and her mother also appears on Glenn Beck's documentary which air on Friday 22, 2010 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm. at FOXNEWS. I recommend to all Americans viewing this documentary. The best option against tyrannies is to be informed and educated ahead of time.
Che: The Other Side Of An Icon is not finished yet, but it will be coming on May 2010.
You can see the previews of my other documentaries of this series made with the goal to educate American people about what socialism/communism did to Cuba and its people. But it can happens anywhere.
