Cuban hero says film ‘Wasp Network’ is full of inaccuracies

On his Twitter account, Guerrero highlights the positive reaction, reflected in a large number of comments and suggestions after seeing the film, to read the book that contains the true story of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters, considered by them the most comprehensive and factual.

The volume was launched in Havana in 2017, during the 25th edition of the Havana International Book Fair.

The Cuban Five, as Guerrero, Gerardo Hernandez, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino and Fernando Gonzalez are known internationally, were arrested in 1998 in the United States and sentenced to long prison terms for alerting their country (Cuba) -during the 1990s- of plans by violent groups based in South Florida.

Regarding the premiere this year by Netflix of the film ‘Wasp Network’, by French director Olivier Assayas, Rene Gonzalez also reflected on Twitter a few months ago about the destruction of the lie, while Guerrero warned a few hours ago that the plans to attack Cuba are still in force.

The film was premiered in Cuba in December 2019, during the 41st edition of the Havana International Film Festival and the Cuban Five were applauded at Yara Movie Theater by national and foreign audience that thanked them for their courage; even though the film is not enough to show the whole story.

‘Wasp Network’, starring Spanish actress Penelope Cruz, Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, Venezuela’s Edgar Ramirez and Brazil’s Wagner Moura, among others, was co-produced by France, Spain, Belgium and Brazil. 

The movie was also screened in 2019 during the 76th edition of the Venice International Film Festival.
