La Emboscada (The Ambush) Director: Alejandro Gil Alvarez | Fiction Thursday, June 9 at 7:00pm at MSP Film at The Main

The Ambush dramatizes a tense stand-off between four surviving Cuban troops and opposing counterrevolutionary forces in Angola. Above all it is about the generational tensions within individuals and Cuban society reflected by their behavior when the soldiers are caught in an ambush by guerilla units aiding the South African Army in its attack on the post-colonial Angola government of the MPLA, which Cuba was helping to defend.
