Cuba, an African Odyssey is a French 2007 documentary film directed by Jihan El Tahri.
From the early 1960s to the early 1990s, Cuba was instrumental in supporting a number of leftist insurgencies and nationalist movements on the African continent, which it justified under the communist theory of proletarian internationalism. The documentary focuses on Cuba's role in the decolonization of Africa and the extent of its military intervention in several postcolonial African conflicts, such as the South African Border War, Angolan Civil War, and the Ogaden War.
