Dr. Steeve Coupeau Goes One-on-One with Zuzelin Martin Lynch, Director of ‘Craving Cuba’ featured at Hudson River International Film Festival, 11 October 2018
Can you talk about the freedom flight and how people could not bring any belongings? When did the flights start and ended?
The Freedom Flights began as an agreement between the United States and the Cuban government, allowing 265,000 Cubans to leave Cuba on the basis of political asylum between 1965 and 1973. Those who were allowed to leave Cuba had to leave everything behind except for a change of clothes. All other possessions were inventoried and became property of the Cuban government.
