Filmmaker Jeri Rice talks about the challenges in making “Embargo,” her milestone documentary that began with her chance meeting with Cuban Premier Fidel Castro in 2002. Speaking with people that were integral to the events that lead to and perpetuated the embargo against Cuba, Jeri reveals the intriguing story behind the troubled history of America’s relationship with Cuba — and her reasons for making this important film.
Today, relations are being normalized, but the embargo is NOT over.
