This Week: ELÍAN opens exclusively in Miami at O Cinema.

ELÍAN

EXCLUSIVELY IN MIAMI AT O CINEMA MIAMI BEACH!

As the new millennium began, one news story captured the attention and hearts of nearly every American and certainly every Miamian.

On Thanksgiving 1999, a young Cuban boy named Elián González was found floating in the Florida Straits by himself after his mother drowned trying to seek refuge in the United States. Before long, the 5-year-old González became the centerpiece of an intense custody battle between his father back in Cuba and his relatives in Miami, which, in turn, brought attention to the long-brewing tensions between Fidel Castro's Cuba and the U.S.

Throughout the news coverage, though, one voice was too young to join the heated international conversation: that of Elián himself. Eighteen years later, in the wake of Fidel Castro's death last November, ELIÁN lets the now 23-year-old tell his story, along with the other key players, of one of the biggest news events in modern times and a defining moment in the story of Miami's Cuban exile community.

Executive produced by Alex Gibney and narrated by Raul Esparza, filmmakers Tim Golden and Ross McDonnell use Elián's intimate details as the jumping-off point for a powerfully relevant historical account- featuring interviews with all those involved on both sides of the Florida straits. After a well-received premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this month, ELIÁN makes its exclusive Miami theatrical engagement at O Cinema Miami Beach.
