As Fidel Castro turns 90 on August 13 solidarity groups and admirers from around the world will be recognizing his birthday in numerous ways. This momentous occasion will open a period of celebration and reflection on a leader who never wavered against the Empire despite over 600 attempts on his life and their constant attempts to undermine the Cuban Revolution. Cuba has come to be a living, unrelenting beacon that never dims in our collective struggle for a better more just world based on equality, peace and mutual respect.

Roberto Chile’s remarkable and poignant exhibit of 17 images is a dignified documentation of Fidel in the later period of his life. It is currently being shown around the world from now until the end of the year.
