93 Miles

Noah Canavan
United States, 2018, 17 min.

In Spanish and English with English subtitles.

The night after defecting Cuba, a baseball player and his girlfriend are held up in a Mexican hotel room. The tension rises as the two become claustrophobic in this stressful situation that they are stuck in.

Director's Statement

After first learning about those who have defected Cuba and their tragic journeys, I became amazed that many weren't aware of their stories. Many athletes won't publicly discuss their defections, due to the dangers with the ties involved. My goal is to spread awareness of the shocking true stories behind the Cuban athletes who defect to the United States.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Border, Immigration, Sports.
