Film premiere documents political prisoner's life
Miami Dade College, in cooperation with the Lawton Foundation for Human Rights, recently premiered Oscar’s Cuba at the College’s historic Tower Theater in Little Havana. The feature-length documentary on Cuban political prisoner Dr. Oscar Elías Biscet González, one of the communist island’s best-known dissidents and human-rights advocates who is currently serving a 25-year prison term with no due process, was produced and directed by Jordan Allott.
The screening at the Tower Theater was preceded by a reception and question-and-answer session with the filmmakers at the Cuba Ocho Art Center. In attendance were prominent figures both in and outside the Cuban exile community.
