Summary John F. Kennedy's assassination on November 22, 1963 was the murder of the century. Over the intervening 40 years, divergent conspiracy theories surrounding the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, have captured the imagination of people the world over. Now, for the first time since the Warren commission presented its findings in 1964, compelling facts supporting a new scenario have been uncovered and are presented in the two-part documentary, Rendezvous With Death: Kennedy And Castro. The documentary presents the findings from years of in-depth research carried out by Wilfried Huismann and his team. Huismann believes that the evidence revealed in this documentary proves Oswald to be a weapon-for-hire in the ultimate round of a deadly duel between John F. and Robert Kennedy vs. Fidel Castro. This dual was sparked by the US invasion of Cuba's Bay of Pigs that was ordered by President Kennedy in April 1961. The success of Castro's troops in putting down the US forces was a political disaster for Kennedy and set in motion a chain of events that ultimately ended with the death of John F. Kennedy. Rendezvous With Death: Kennedy And Castro reveals that only a few close aides to JKF and his successor Lyndon B. Johnson were privy to the secret details regarding the political stand off between Kennedy and Castro. With Huismann's camera running, top-level historical witnesses reveal for the first time what they know: Alexander Haig, Joseph Califano, Sam Halpern - responsible, in 1963, for the top-secret CIA "AM-LASH' program aimed at murdering Fidel Castro - as well as FBI supervisor Lawrence Keenan. Weeks before Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Oswald travelled to Mexico. The documentary looks at how just after the assassination, Laurence Keenan re-traced Oswald's movements in Mexico to find out what he had done during his seven-day stay there. According to this documentary, the information that Keenan and his team of FBI and CIA experts were confronted with was so explosive that the newly sworn-in President Johnson personally ordered an immediate halt to the investigations in Mexico. For the first time in the history of the investigation of the Kennedy assassination, the Mexican secret service DSF - responsible for the tight surveillance maintained on Oswald during his Mexican sojourn - allows filmmaker Wilfried Huismann and Laurence Keenan access to the archives. Filed under 'Oswaldo-Kennedy' Huismann and Keenan discover copious material: Surveillance reports, interrogation transcripts and photos. Wilfried Huismann's Rendezvous With Death: Kennedy And Castro, is a milestone on the long road to the final resolution of the open question of the century, one that has grown to mythological proportions: Who really killed JFK? .
