Shoot Down: a new documentary film


Shoot Down: a new documentary film
Winner  of the 2007 Sonoma Film Festival Award for Best Documentary, Shoot Down is the  first featurelength film about one of the most pivotal events in U.S.-Cuba  relations: the fatal 1996 attack on two unarmed civilian aircraft by Cuban military fighter jets over the ocean south of Florida. It is a story of  diplomatic relations, human rights, the fortitude of family and the dogged passion ignited by the search for truth and freedom.
 
It is set for theatrical release in late November, and features never-before-seen footage of Fidel Castro  talking about the incident, actual cockpit recordings of the MiG pilots and a re-enactment of the actual shoot down aided by radar screens captured by a  U.S. Customs officer on duty that day.
