This chapter explores the role of documentary films in the articulation of official and unofficial discourses about the Revolution. It examines the Zafra de los Diez Millones, a disastrous attempt to base the economy on an all-volunteer labor force, through the eyes of young sugarcane cutters and the lens of documentary filmmakers whose movies about rank-and-file loyalists gave voice to the many counternarratives that contradicted and undermined the state's right to control discourse.

Keywords:   documentary film, Revolution, Zafra de los Diez Millones, filmmakers, counternarratives, discourse
