Cuba - Benefit Screening of Embargo

Thursday, September 7 at 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Laemmle Monica Film Center

1332 2nd St, Santa Monica, California 90401


A private reception and screening benefiting the Arts and Cultural Bridge Foundation, hosted by Aris Anagnos, Edward Asner, Hector Elizondo, Jan Goodman, Ed Harris, Brad Horwitz, Jerry Manpearl, Susan Sarandon, and the Arts and Cultural Bridge Foundation, will be held on Thursday, September 7th at the Laemmle Monica, Santa Monica. A Q&A will follow the screening with Director: Jeri Rice; Vice President Los Angeles Port Commissioners: Dave Arian; Editor in Chief of Truthdig: Bob Scheer and American Author, Journalist and Public Speaker: Nomi Prins. Tickets: 0. RSVP before Sept. 1st to suzanne@artsculturalbridge.org.

Next Year In Havana Films presents Embargo, a film by first-time, female director, Jeri Rice, which premieres in Santa Monica at the Laemmle Monica Film Center on September 8th through the 14th and in New York City at the Village East Cinema on September 15th through the 21st for one-week runs. The 90-minute documentary follows Rice?s quest for truth, beginning with a rare encounter with Cuban President, Fidel Castro.

In 2002, Rice traveled to Cuba with 40 influential women from the Pacific Northwest; the University of Washington and U.S. Senator, Maria Cantwell. The Communist leader, Fidel Castro confesses to her that the utopia he tried to create, did not succeed and he had no time to fix it. Rice sets out to find why her country's unprecedented embargo of Cuba has persisted unabated, long after the Cold War. Embargo is the result of 14 years of research. From a 30-year career in fashion to foreign policy, and finally to the art of filmmaking, Jeri?s passion for truth telling is the final result.

Along with information from recently declassified documents and original interviews with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Sergei Khrushchev, Ted Sorensen, and Lucie Arnaz?among others?an unprecedented array of historical, political, social and cultural perspectives is revealed in Embargo. New insights into: the Fulgencio Batista-Richard Nixon- CIA connections; Nixon?s link to the failed Bay of Pig invasion; behind the scenes with Ted Sorensen during the Cuban Missile Crisis; Watergate and more.

The film's compelling truths ultimately link the threads of an untold history, as it exposes a foreign policy that has failed both countries. Now is a time of change between Cuba and the United States ? forward or backward, and the future of the embargo hangs in the balance. A new Cold War developing with the threat of nuclear confrontations, Embargo?s relevance to today?s political climate is a perfect point to begin a new conversation.

The screenings are sponsored by the Arts and Cultural Bridge Foundation (artsculturalbridge.org). The Foundation?s purpose is to foster opportunities to promote dialogue, cultural exchanges, support actions and initiatives that contribute to the normalization of relations and for a better understanding between the people of Cuba and the United States. Additional Sponsors include: Aris Anagnos, The Campizondo Foundation ? A Donor Advised Fund of The U.S. Charitable Gift Trust, Ed Harris, and The Horwitz Family Memorial Foundation. Media Sponsors: KPFK 90.7fm (kpfk.org) Los Angeles and WBAI 99.5fm (wbai.org) New York City.
