THE EMBARGO

Re-Evolution: The Embargo examines the ongoing impact of the U.S. embargo against Cuba, a longstanding prohibition on economic exchange known to Cubans as "el bloqueo." The film interviews people from both countries — including online fashion retailer Idania del Río, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, and former U.S. secretary of commerce Carlos Gutierrez — about the impact of "el bloqueo" on people trying to make their livelihood in Cuba today.
