Quote of the day

“I don’t think they are going to show it on television.”

A 34-year-old cinema goer identified only as Miguel, speaking after the once-only showing of the German film The Life of Others as part of the Havana Film Festival. The award-winning film about Communist repression in the old German Democratic Republic attracted hundreds of people, according to this report in the Spanish daily El Pais.

Why shouldn't they show it on television? It could be very useful in further intimidating the people. It's not pretty, obviously, but nobody in Cuba thinks he's living in Disneyworld.
