Documentary Trailer: Elián

Just after dawn on Thanksgiving Day 1999, two South Florida fishermen rescued a 5-year-old boy from the Florida Straits. Thus began the saga of Elián González, who became caught up in a bitter international custody battle. Now, a documentary revisits the painful chapter in Cuban-American history. Elián, the film, mines hundreds of hours of archival news footage from both sides of the Florida Straits, as well as home videos, and interviews with key players.
