Abstract in Portuguese
Este trabalho analisa um conjunto de películas, entre ficções, documentários e cinejornais, que retrataram os vínculos do regime político de Fidel Castro com movimentos de independência e governos africanos entre 1960 e 1991, bem como os aspectos políticos, econômicos e culturais da África. Instituições cubanas de produção fílmica, como o Instituto Cubano de Arte e Indústria Cinematográficos (ICAIC) e os Estúdios Cinematográficos e de Televisão das Forças Armadas Revolucionárias (ECITVFAR), destacaram-se pelo empenho em construir imagens que legitimassem a presença da ilha naquele continente. Entre os temas privilegiados nessa produção, a questão militar foi um princípio norteador da maior parte dos relatos audiovisuais, uma vez que os uniformizados de Cuba auxiliaram diversos grupos políticos africanos em guerras de emancipação e conflitos armados com países vizinhos. Nesse grande campo "anti-imperialista" e transatlântico, algumas tensões marcaram os diferentes contextos, sejam de ordem internacional, como as expectativas e desilusões com os aliados estrangeiros, sejam nacionais, como as complexas relações raciais na ilha e as representações dos soldados mortos em combate no continente africano.

Abstract in English
This PhD thesis analyzes a set of films, including fictions, documentaries and newsreels, which showed the relation of Fidel Castro's political regime with independency movements and African governments between 1960 and 1991 as well as the political, economic and cultural aspects of Africa. Cuban film production institutions such as the Cuban Institute of Art and Cinematographic Industry (ICAIC) and the Cinematographic and Television Studios of the Revolutionary Armed Forces (ECITVFAR) distinguished their efforts to build images that legitimize the island's presence on that continent. Among privileged themes of this production, the military issue was a guiding principle of most audiovisual narratives, since the Cuban fighters helped several African political groups in their emancipation wars and armed conflicts with neighbouring countries. On this "anti-imperialist" and transatlantic field, some tensions marked the different contexts, whether international, such as, expectations and disappointments with foreign allies, or national, such as, the difficult racial relations on the island and the representations of dead soldiers in combat on the African continent.
