Abstract:

While Presidents Clinton and Fidel Castro argued over the closing of Cuba's coast in the chaotic summer of 1994, nearly 50,000 "balseros" (a slang term for Cuban rafters) set out towards Florida, navigating the shark-infested waters on vessels made of wood, nails, and tar. The television reporting team of Charles Bosch and Josep M. Domènech began filming this remarkable story over those landmark 15 days. Then, as most of the rafters were picked up by the U.S. Coast Guard, Bosch and Domènech continued to follow their lively cast of characters, some of whom were detained for more than a year at the Guantanamo naval base before finally being allowed onto American soil. Spanning seven years within the complex and utterly fascinating lives of these Cuban survivors, BALSEROS intimately crosscuts out-of-sequence to show family reactions to moments just unfurled. What results is a poignant piece of filmmaking which mirrors the universal spirit, drama and adventure of the immigrant experience..
