A working title for a project that has a personal connection to Chucha Barber. It is the story of her father’s relationship with Fidel Castro, as the first Latin American Editor of The Miami Herald. It is based on 650 front-page stories her dad wrote about the Cuban Revolution, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis and other events of significance in U.S. Latin American relations. The story includes the romantic tale of an American that became the highest-ranking officer of the Revolution and the impact of the Mariel boatlift. The video posted is a primitive form of the story created for a short film contest. Currently the team is working on a sizzle reel to create a television series.
