111. NFB — Background to Latin America — 58 min 24 s

From Cuba to Argentina—a review of the history of this rich sub—continent and its aspiring but impoverished people. Once vassals of Spain or Portugal, these Americans hope for better things. Why is there instability? What causes the constant ferment? The film shows the proud history of twenty republics and their growing unrest.
