Program Description

In August 1994 more than 34,000 Cubans left their homeland by sea in rudimentary and mostly unseaworthy crafts. This poignant documentary explores this phenomena through interviews where Cubans talk of their motivation for leaving the island. "Changing Tides", produced by Margaret Gilpin and directed by Luis Felipe Bernaza, is one of the few independent film from a Cuban film director in Cuba since 1959.
