Dear Fidel – Marita's Story

  • Film

Time Out says

Just after the revolution, 19-year-old Marita Ilona Lorenz, who had been born in Germany, pitched up in Cuba with her sea captain father. A chance meeting with Castro led to a passionate love affair whose brutal termination propelled embittered Marita into the arms of the CIA and shady anti-communist forces based in Miami. Despite this, Marita has never been able to relinquish her 'sad love' for Castro and embarks on one final trip to Cuba to look him up. The incredible life of this complicated woman, touching on the tangled fates of JFK, Castro and Cuba itself, is beautifully evoked in this haunting record.
