90 Miles

Location:  Miami, FL
Project Description: 

90 Miles is a personal memoir that offers a rare glimpse into Cuba. The Cuban-born filmmaker recounts the strange fate that brought him as a teenage communist to exile in Miami in 1980 during the dramatic Mariel boatlift. Zaldivar uses news clips, family photos, and home movies to depict the emotional journey of an immigrant father and son struggling to understand the historical and individual forces shaping their relationships and identities in a new country.
