Shoot Down

This film focuses on an important political event in the mid-nineties when the Cuban Air Force shot down two “humanitarian” missions who flew over Cuban soil in violation of international law. The case raised tremendous issues of whether Cuba was acting in justified self-defense or whether these pilots were actually acting aggressively with a political agenda. The film was released theatrically in a number of markets, mostly in Florida.
