AP: Cuban-American filmmaker risks punishment

By Indiewire | Indiewire June 7, 2006 at 8:09AM

Cuban-American filmmaker Luis Moro expressed his disdain for the long-standing U.S. trade and travel restrictions against Cuba in a very public way: he made a movie there. Moro's "Love and Suicide" screened recently in New Jersey after having been shown last year in Los Angeles, Miami Beach and the Bahamas. The film, linked as it is to Moro's personal crusade against the U.S. embargo, led U.S. officials to investigate Moro for possible violation of U.S. laws that make it almost impossible for most Americans to legally visit communist Cuba. Vanessa Arrington reports.
