In the first half of the 20th century, Cuba was a tropical playground for Americans.
But the island nation was off-limits to American tourists for three decades from after the Cuban Revolution led by Fidel Castro until the early 1990′s when Americans began to travel to Cuba on “People-to-People” cultural exchange tours.
Cuba Libre, an upcoming documentary film about travel by Americans to Cuba produced by Tales Told From The Road publisher, Dick Jordan, includes historic film footage of Cuba in the early to mid-20th century, the revolution led by Fidel Castro and the break in diplomatic ties between Cuba and the United States, film and photos from more recent times, and interviews of five travel writers who have visited Cuba during the last twenty years.
The film’s trailer aired on MarinTV this past week and has been made available for broadcast by other public access television stations across the U.S.
(Dick Jordan has produced fifteen other shows for public access television since 2013. His “Travel With A Sense of Place” series has aired on over twenty stations serving over a million households across the nation.)
