Say Brother; Look at Cuba, A; Lyle Lane discusses mutual exchange program between United States and Cuba

Part of Say Brother.

05/05/1978

In this clip Eduardo Diaz asks Lyle Lane, Chief, US Interest Section, if the United States government is trying to work out a way in which Cuban Americans can visit their families in Cuba. He feels it is an area that will be mutually beneficial to both countries, and hope to encourage the formation of a more regular program that will allow residents from both countries to visit each other. Overall the program offers a contemporary profile of Cuba utilizing Say Brother interview footage shot during the production's 1977 visit to Cuba and two studio discussions (one which is "pro-Cuba" as it is, the other "anti-Castro"). Host Eduardo Diaz speaks with Mauricio Gaston (a designer in Cambridge and member of the Antonio Maceo Brigade) and Dr. Emilio Carrillo (who works at Cambridge City Hospital) about their positive experiences in Cuba (including their opinions on Cuban advancements in housing, healthcare, the political environment, and cultural expression) in discussion "one," and Ana Galbis (who recently moved to the United States from Cuba after living there for 17 years), Manuel Marquez-Sterling (Chairman of the History Department at the University of New Hampshire at Plymouth), and Modesto Maidique (a professor at the Harvard Business School, Harvard University) in discussion "two" (which looks at the changes in Cuba after the 1959 revolution, the sublimation of racism [rather than the eradication] and the lack of freedoms that prompted members participating in the discussion to leave). Diaz talks to Lyle Lane of the US Interest Section about relations between the United States and Cuba. Segments filmed in Cuba feature Eduardo Diaz talking to Cubans living in Havana about their lives, as well as footage of Cuban dance and instrumental performances. Produced by Barbara Barrow-Murray. Directed by David Atwood.
