Garcia Film Banned For Anti-Guevara Sentiment

Movie star ANDY GARCIA's controversial new movie THE LOST WORLD has been banned in parts of South America because it depicts romantic revolutionary ERNESTO 'CHE' GUEVARA in a terrible light. The OCEAN'S TWELVE star spent years trying to get the project made, only for film festival bosses and cinema chains to shun the movie because it tells the truth about the Marxist guerilla leader and the Cubans slayed as he fought to revolutionise the country and hand FIDEL CASTRO leadership. Garcia, who wrote, directed and stars in the film, says, "There have been festivals that wouldn't show it. That will continue to happen from people who don't want to see the image of Che be tarnished and from people who support the Castro regime. He still has a lot of supporters out there. "Some people think Castro is a saviour, that he looks out for the kids and the poor. It's a bunch of hogwash. "In the 45 years since Castro came to power, Cuba has been in the top three countries for human rights abuses for 43 of those years. People turn a blind eye to his atrocities."
