Antonio Guerrero
This portrait of 16 years of struggle couldn’t be more timely, with the release from US prisons of Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, and Antonio Guerrero, joining Fernando González and René González on Cuban soil. The five revolutionaries were framed up in 1998 on “conspiracy” charges. Their alleged crimes? Gathering information on Cuban American groups that have long carried out murderous attacks on the Cuban Revolution and its supporters.

Guerrero’s 16 watercolors, along with his words and those of his four compañeros, convey the dignity, strength, humanity and humor of these unbowed soldiers, who’ve become the face of the Cuban Revolution the world over. Their freedom was won by a hard-fought international campaign. The jury of millions has spoken. The Cuban Five are free!
