Huber Matos (26 November 1918 – 27 February 2014) was a Cuban dissident activist and writer. Previously, he had been a revolutionary who assisted Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and other members of the 26th of July Movement (M-26-7) in successfully overthrowing the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista as part of the Cuban Revolution. Matos had opposed Batista since the general's effective coup in 1952, which he regarded as unconstitutional, but became increasingly critical of the movement's shift towards Marxist principles, and closening ties with leaders of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC). Convicted of "treason and sedition" by the new Castro regime, he would spend 20 years in prison (1959–1979) before being released in 1979.

Celebrating Life in Union, narrated by Andy Garcia is a one-hour documentary about a group of cuban former political prisoners who fought with Fidel Castro, and later after Huber Matos, the third high ranking officer of the Fidel Castro revolution resigned, these men fought against Fidel Castro and were jailed, abuse and tortured. 

Producer of Celebrating Life in Union, Gladys Bensimon shares the similarities of what occured in Cuba 1959 and the atrocieties the Venezuelan people are undergoing right now.
