Havana, Nov 24 (Prensa Latina) Athletics lovers around the world will enjoy a documentary about two-time Cuban Olympic champion Alberto Juantorena's life at the forthcoming Havana International Film Festival, the weekly Jit reported.
 
The documentary, entitled 'Running for the Revolution', brings together passages of one of Cuba's most emblematic athletes, the only one who won the 400m and 800m gold medals in an Olympiad.

Directed by filmmaker Mark Craig and produced by Sports Channel, the documentary was filmed over the past five years and has witnessed people close to Juantorena's life, either as rivals or in their daily tasks.

In statements to the Jit website, Juantorena expressed his approval for the documentary and did not want to advance many details of the film, which will have its premiere on December 5 at the 23 y 12 movie theater in El Vedado, Havana.

Many of those who were and are deeply involved in my life participated, and above all, how important Fidel Castro was to me is very present.
