Jeri Rice is a first time film director. From a 30 year, successful career in the fashion industry, Jeri changed course. In 2002, Jeri was invited to traveled to Cuba with 40 influential women from the Pacific Northwest, the University of Washington and U.S. Senator, Maria Cantwell. The group was met by Fidel Castro and this prompted Jeri to ask the question, ” Why does the U.S. still have an embargo against Cuba?” Embargo is the result of 14 years of research. From fashion to foreign policy and finally to the art of filmmaking, Jeri’s passion for truth telling is the final result.
