Guantanamo: The Frontier of Death is the third documentary by PalenqueVision, the newly founded audio-visual project of the Eastern Democratic Alliance. Like their previous two documentaries- “The Prisons of Cuba: Sequence of Terror” and “Black Hole“- “The Frontier of Death” was filmed and edited by members of the Alliance within the island.
This new documentary investigates the situation in Guantanamo Bay, where thousands of Cubans have crossed in an attempt to search for freedom in the US naval base stationed in that area, and where there are countless fields of land mines, placed there by the Castro regime in the 60’s. The interviewees are victims of these mine explosions and also citizens who have tried to cross the bay for freedom but were returned to Cuba and treated as criminals.
As of now, the documentary only has an all Spanish version but an English subtitled version is on its way.
