“Bahia de Cochinos, Nuestra perspectiva" is a documentary film about the Bay of pigs as told through the eyes of Cuban Exiles who actually participated in the invasion. Now, many years later, they contemplate the happenings and share their individual satires and feelings with us. That story comes at a price, a price we ask them if they would be willing to pay again. When all is said and done, are these past invaders resentful? Do they cast any blame? Who lost most in the Bay of Pigs invasion?
Featured in the film is testimony by members of the 2506 Brigade: Ángel Casabona Ruiz, Isidoro López González, Ricardo Montero Duque, Raúl Puig Sánchez, and Alvin Ross Diaz; as well as Sergio Gatria, director of the Cuban Information Center. Their stories are moving and shed light of the infamous Bay of Pigs Invasion. The film is bound to create some serious dialogue about what truly lies behind the events leading up to the invasion and the fallout thereafter.
The film is directed by renowned Cuban director, Ricardo Bacallao and Lucio Fernandez; and produced by MeLu Films and The Grace Theatre Workshop, Inc.; Megan Fernandez, Executive Producer.
