Castro Spies, followed by Q&A - this is a fundraiser for Ranelagh Arts
'Castro's Spies' is the kind of documentary where you know the story could easily be turned into a movie, but it would never be able to capture any of the richness or the integrity of a documentary. Not only that, it seems all but virtually certain that no mainstream US studio would even dare take on the story for fear of it being accused of collaboration and communism.

Ranelagh Arts Fundraiser AN CAILÍN CIÚIN (THE QUIET GIRL)
