Yo Soy Fidel follows the cortege of Fidel Castro, former Cuban revolutionary and politician, over a period of several days in late 2016. Michael Christopher Brown leaned out a rear passenger window of his passing vehicle in order to photograph Cubans waiting alongside the highway... for Fidel's military convoy, carrying his cremated remains from Havana to Santiago, to pass.
