I’m posting this update to share a rewarding benefit from our theatrical journey with LOVE & SUICIDE, the movie shot on location in Havana, Cuba. Inside U.S. Government sources have confirmed that the process to abolish the Embargo on Cuba in 2007 has begun.

The effect on the public seeing the real Cuba and seeing real Cuban life in the film; is making an impact on our elected officials. Thousand of citizens keep asking politicians. “Why are you supporting a policy that has not worked in 47 years?”

It seems we have helped bring a real visual awareness to the U.S. Embargo on Cuba. After eight months in commercial theatres, with ten weeks screening in Miami, FL and finishing this November with a 450 people premiere in Los Angeles. The Cuban Evolution is here.
One of our highlights was screening in Miami Florida with the AMC Theatres Select program. We grew up to five theatres in Miami and out grossed many studio films at the box office.
But the biggest reward was the community that received us in Miami. Though the film is not political, you can’t help but see the negative results from both Cuba’s and America’s failed 47 years of politics. Almost all pro-embargo, anti-embargo and neutral viewers of the film agreed, it’s time to lift the embargo on Cuba. The embargo simply has not worked in 47 years.
We now know some U.S. politicians have seen the movie. They have been affected deeply. Especially after seeing the reality in Cuba with their own eyes. When you see real images with real people, it’s hard to avoid the duplicity of the outdated embargo.
Thank God some of these pro-embargo politicians are now preparing to abolish the embargo in 2007. We already know they don’t want the embargo. What we don’t know is which “former” pro-embargo politician will stand up first. The race is on to see which one has the courage to go public first.
Thank you for being part of “The Cuban Evolution.” The embargo will be abolished in 2007. Luis Moro, Filmmaker.
