Paula Roque in Boxers and Ballerinas

Boxers and Ballerinas

2004 NR

This revealing documentary follows four young people -- a boxer and ballerina in Miami and a boxer and ballerina in Havana -- who share similar hopes and dreams, but face disparate challenges relating to their individual circumstances and geographical trajectory. Yordenis and Annia must deal with poverty and restricted travel in Communist Cuba, while Cuban Americans Sergio and Paula have no shortage of their own struggles to deal with.
