Voices from Mariel is truly an inspiring movie. It shows the true colors of Cuban and American history, and how so many Cubans became such a vital and large part of American society. Looking past the emotional and rough experience of having to drop ones whole life and head towards a foreign country, the ones who left have truly made the absolute best of the situation, and it is incredible to see. I cannot even begin to imagine what it would be like to have experienced living in Cuba during the 80's and the emotional and physical journey they had to go through to reach freedom; which is why this movie is an excellent way to show the rest of the world what truly happened. Before watching this movie I did know my fair share of the history of Cuba, however, watching this gave me a whole new perspective to it. It was incredible to hear so many different peoples personal experiences and to see how their lives have changed since then.
Adding to this, the courage that Dr. Garcia had to return to Cuba after so many years is very impressive and inspirational. It takes a lot of courage and determination to go back to a place where you were once rejected and try to trace your own footsteps. This is a great movie that I highly recommend to everyone.
