The thrilling story of an elite group of Cuban spies sent undercover to Florida in the 1990s. Abandoning unsuspecting families to ‘defect’ to America, they assumed new identities, led double lives and sacrificed everything to defend Castro’s Cuba from the threat of foreign attack.

From their recruitment, training and eventual capture on US soil, this fascinating, forensic film features previously unseen footage and in-depth interviews with all five agents, revealing the risks they took and their place in the bigger picture of fraught Cuban-American relations.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with co-director Gary Lennon.

This film will be screened with captions and the Q&A will be BSL interpreted.
