In 2002, Jeri Rice travelled to Cuba with a group of 40 influential American women. Her experiences there spurred that oft-asked question: Why does the US still have an embargo against Cuba? This remarkable documentary, 14 years in the making, is Rice’s deeply researched response to that question.
Embargo tracks the embargo’s long history, impact and evolution. Utilizing recently declassified documents and interviews with Robert Kennedy, Jr., Sergei Khrushchev, Ted Sorensen, and Lucie Arnaz, Rice takes us from pre-Revolution days through the Cuban Missile Crisis to the current era’s attempts to end the embargo and rebuild diplomatic and economic relations between the US and this singular island so very near to American soil—and American hearts.
