New Film On Cuba - EMBARGO!
EMBARGO chronicles the story of the politics and collusion behind the Cuban embargo; its history, impact and evolution.
Embargo documents the journey of an American woman, Jeri Rice's quest for truth, beginning with a rare encounter with Cuban President, Fidel Castro in 2002, when the Communist leader confesses to her that the utopia he tried to create, did not succeed and he was unable to fix it. Rice sets out to find out why her country's unprecedented embargo of Cuba has persisted unabated, long after the Cold War.
Along with information from recently declassified documents and original interviews with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Sergei Khrushchev, Ted Sorensen, and Lucie Arnazamong othersan unprecedented array of historical, political, social and cultural perspectives is revealed. New insights into: the Fulgencio Batista-Richard Nixon- CIA connections; Nixon's link to the failed Bay of Pig invasion; behind the scenes with Ted Sorensen during the Cuban Missile Crisis; Watergate and more….
The film's compelling truths ultimately link the threads of an untold history, as it exposes a foreign policy that has failed both countries. Now is a time of change between Cuba and the United States forward or backward, and the future of the embargo hangs in the balance. A new Cold War developing with the threat of nuclear confrontations, Embargo's relevance to today's political climate is a perfect point to begin a new conversation.

The trailer can be seen here:
"Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws. - Mayer Rothschild
"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience! People are obedient in the face of poverty, starvation, stupidity, war, and cruelty. Our problem is that grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem!" - Howard Zinn
"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and never will" - Frederick Douglass
Looks pretty good, Peter. I noticed Lamar Waldron is one of the interviewed.

Funny, though, i don't foresee as many people wearing Fidel t-shirts like you see wearing Che shirts.

If you read the one comment on the youtube trailer, it's pretty fair-handed, IMHO. Thanks for posting this.
