On New Year's Day 1959, Magnum photographer Burt Glinn lands in Havana, driven by a sixth sense that tells him the time for revolution has come. And so it is. The photographs he took during those hectic days - Casto surrounded by men and women supporting the revolution, armed troops advancing towards the capital, the people arming themselves to join the struggle - testify to the revolutionary fervor and idealism that characterized that important turning point in Cuban history.
