Storyline

Okay, here's the situation. I was born in Havana. That makes me Cuban. But, I was raised in little Havana, which makes me Cuban-American. However, since I don't see Castro as the root of all evil in the universe, nor would I strangle him with my bare hands given the opportunity, I am a little out of step with my tribe. I always have been. And I really don't care. My dad, on the other hand, does care. He cares a great deal. Back in Havana he was a revolutionary and fought alongside Castro for the freedom of the Cuban people. Then he had a falling out with his old friend and it was Miami, here we come. But his animosity towards Castro did not last and he soon wanted dialogue with the Cuban government. Perhaps, to live in peace. That's when the shit hit the fan. Bombings, death threats and drive by shootings were a daily occurrence in our home. But who would do this to us? We were Americans. Surely, it must be the Communists, right? Wrong. My father became the focal point of the ... Written by twohavanas@yahoo.com

Outstanding Documentary
24 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director, Vivien Weisman, does a superb job of drawing you in to the Cuban revolution and the following migration of its refugees to Miami. This personal journey brings home the risks involved in taking a stand. Courage has its price. Her family's deep commitment to the Cuban cause takes a strange twist when ex-patriot Cubans shoot bullets at her childhood home. Growing up with danger,Weisman portrays the Cuban situation (with all of its complexities) from an insider's point of view. This film is bound to stir up emotions for Cubans and on-lookers alike. From the perspective of a daughter caught in Cuban politics since before she could talk, Weisman juxtaposes the poverty of the Cuban people with her own life in the United States. Great imagery from the revolution. Very compelling movie.
