‘Voices From Mariel’ Trailer from NFocus on Vimeo.



Discontent with political and economic oppression, 125,000 Cubans fled their homes through the port of Mariel and sailed to the United States in 1980. Thirty years later one Marielito risks returning home to a country that rejected him to reconnect with friends and loved ones he left behind and to see, touch and remember the land of his birth. Set against the historical context of the Mariel Boatlift, Jose Garcia and other Marielitos tell their stories of leaving their homeland and coming to America.
