We will show 30 minutes total of Uphill on the Hill and Hardliner on the Hudson. They are unreleased. Both docs are 30-40 minutes each but given an hour 20 minutes is generally too long for audiences; we’ll show abridged and polished 15-minute segments of each.
In Uphill on the Hill, award -winning Cuban journalist Liz Olivia Fernandez travels to Washington D.C., where she exposes the political interests driving the U.S. government’s Cold War-era policy toward Cuba.
In Hardliner on the Hudson, award-winning Cuban journalist Liz Olivia Fernandez goes to Union City, New Jersey, where she looks into the murky past of Senator Bob Menendez and reveals how he became the de facto powerbroker for Biden’s Cuba policy.
