Cinema Libre to distrib ‘Fidel’ in N. America

Studio nabs rights to Oliver Stone docu

Cinema Libre Studio has acquired North American rights to Oliver Stone’s documentary “Looking for Fidel.”

The hourlong doc stems from more than 30 hours that Stone spent with Fidel Castro during the Cuban upheaval of 2003. It originally aired on HBO in 2004 as a sequel to “Comandante,” Stone’s first interview with Castro that was filmed in 2002. Now, “Looking for Fidel” will be released for the first time on DVD and VOD platforms April 26 by Cinema Libre.

“I think Fidel has granted me a sort of trust in that my editing would not cheat him,” Stone said of the film. “Before you judge him through the eyes of a critical media, listen to the man himself.”

Spain’s Morena Films produced the picture. The deal was negotiated by Nicolas Veinberg of Domain Entertainment and Cinema Libre’s Philippe Diaz.
