IN DEPTH EXPLORATION OF U.S. CUBAN POLITICS THROUGH THE STORY OF THE CUBAN FIVE
Tuesday, April 10, 2012 --- 7 PM
Encuentro 5, 33 Harrison Ave. 5th floor
(near Beach St. in Chinatown)
This film tells the story of the case of the Cuban Five, intelligence agents sent to penetrate Cuban exile
terrorist groups in Miami and now serving long prison sentences. The film highlights decades of assassinations and sabotage at first backed by Washington and then ignored by the very government that launched a “war against terrorism.” This documentary reveals a story of violence that also echoed on the
streets of Washington DC, New York and especially Miami where Cuban American critics of the bombers and shooters wound up dead.
