Cuban America97 MINS2011Latino
For the past 50 years the Cuban immigrant group has established a historical importance, political significance, and economic influence on the city region of Miami. Cubans fleeing in exile, political turmoil, and economic hardship not only made a mark on a cosmopolitan region but also an explosion. The Cuban Diaspora cultural phenomenon has shifted the character of a city and placed Miami in the frontiers of international cities globally and the "Latinization" of the United States. But how was it done? And why is it important? This documentary explores the continuing CUBAN AMERICA story as a concentrated exile group's impact on transforming a sleepy, tourist town into a major, metropolitan community.
