In her 2007 documentary Cuba: An African Odyssey, Egyptian-French filmmaker Jihan El-Tahri follows Cuba's role in African anticolonialist campaigns, from Che Guevara's failed 1965 bid to oust Belgium from the Congo, to the 450,000 troops Castro committed to take on Portugal, South Africa, and the CIA in Angola.

The second half of Cuba: An African Odyssey screens Monday 2/8 at Biblioteca Popular.

It's part of Biblioteca Popular's biweekly screening series "Films of Rebellion: Toward 2010." Monday 2/8 at 7 PM at Biblioteca Popular, 1921 S. Blue Island. $5 suggested donation. See a clip here.
