Castro's Spies

Presented By

The thrilling espionage story of five Cuban agents who took on false identities and travelled to Miami.

Alone and unarmed, the agents’ goal was simply to gather information – creating an early-warning system for future terrorist attacks or even the full-blown US military invasion which they feared was always on the horizon. This film peers into a secret espionage world of five Cuban spies, heading to the States alone.

Using never-before-seen footage from the Cuban Film Institute’s archive and first-hand testimony from the people at the heart of this story, the film gives a rare glimpse into the shadowy world of a spy – where the stakes are life and death.


The story of how the most powerful nation in the world was able to paint Cuba as a communist boogeyman, leering menacingly from across the water.
