Conflicting narratives? Jon Alpert, American journalist & documentary filmmaker
Cuba is one of those countries that has long been perceived and described through the prism of ideology. Known in the USSR as "the freedom island" that shed the chains of capitalism, it has long been seen in the West as one big prison ruled by an iron fist.
