[LA OPCION CERO]
The channel between the tip of Florida and the Cuban coast is inundated with the corpses of Cubans seeking refuge in the U.S. A new generation of migrants seeks passage through a different path: crossing the Darién Gap, a perilous stretch of jungle on the border of Panama and Colombia infamous for instances of human trafficking. When the Obama administration abruptly ends the "wet foot, dry foot" policy, a group of migrants attempting this crossing find themselves in a hellish limbo: prohibited from proceeding by Panamanian officials and unable to return to Cuba due to a lack of funds. Director Marcel Beltrán edited hundreds of hours of footage collected by this contingent using their mobile devices to create an intimate and painful documentary portrait of people seeking freedom and a new life. Official Selection, 2022, Miami Film Festival. DIR/SCR/PROD Marcel Beltrán; PROD Paula Gastaud. Cuba/Brazil/Colombia, 2020, color, 80 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
