BLOQUEO: Looking at the U.S. Embargo Against Cuba
This newly-released documentary features voices from the streets of Havana and the Cuban countryside, "Bloqueo" (or blockade) lets Cubans speak for themselves about how they have been affected by the blockade, and what it means to live in Cuba today. The 45-minute documentary also features analysis from activists traveling with the Pastors for Peace Caravan—an annual journey calling attention to this controversial policy.
"Bloqueo" looks at the successes that have made Cuba a model in healthcare, environmental stewardship, and other arenas that forge an alternative, and ultimately more sustainable, system. 2004, 45min., English and Spanish with English subtitles.
