EMBARGO is a documentary that chronicles the story of the politics and collusion behind the Cuban embargo; its history, impact and evolution.  Along with information from recently declassified documents and original interviews with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Sergei Khrushchev, Ted Sorensen, and Lucie Arnaz, among others, an unprecedented array of historical, political, social and cultural perspectives are revealed. New insights include the Fulgencio Batista-Richard Nixon-CIA connections; Nixon’s link to the failed Bay of Pig invasion; the behind-the-scenes experiences of Ted Sorensen during the Cuban Missile Crisis; Watergate and more. The film's compelling truths ultimately weave the threads of an untold history and expose a foreign policy that has failed both countries.
