“Through Their Eyes” at Toronto Film Festival

WASHINGTON, DC, 16 April 2014 — My wife, Esther, and I are pleased to announce that our documentary, “Through Their Eyes,” has been nominated to compete in the Documentary Feature category at the Toronto International Film and Video Awards festival. The documentary follows a diverse group of six American University students discovering the forbidden island of Cuba during the twilight years of the Castro government. In search of answers regarding race, religion and revolution, they spend four months criss-crossing the communist country — under an economic blockade by the United States since the administration of John F. Kennedy in the 1960s. “Through Their Eyes” reveals not only the secrets of Cuba but, perhaps more importantly, the transformation of six young Americans on their journey of discovery.
