This Oscar-nominated documentary from Carles Bosch and Josep Maria Domenech follows the 1994 exodus of refugees from Cuba to Miami. The perilous journey of the balseros (Cuban rafters) is captured through remarkable footage, including dramatic shots of the would-be refugees tearing down their houses to construct dangerously flimsy rafts. The filmmakers also catch up, seven years later, with a handful of refugees who were allowed into the U.S.
