The first and only feature length movie regarding the murder of four Brothers to the Rescue pilots by the castro regime is set to open in theaters throughout the country this January 25, 2008. But on January 18, a special screening will be held in Miami followed by a question and answer segment with the filmmakers. You can read the press release on that HERE.
You can visit the award winning movie’s official website and read about the filmmakers, the cast, see theater listings, and watch the trailer.
The story of these brave individuals is yet another bloody chapter in the history of the vile castro dictatorship that needs to be told.
UPDATE – 1/13/08
There have been a few comments posted on this story, as well as a couple of e-mails that I have received, that call the intentions of this film into question. Without seeing the movie, it would be impossible for me to comment on its content and truthfulness regarding the murders committed by the castro regime that day. However, Ziva did send me an article from a year or so ago written by a Cuban-American who did see the movie and it appears that Ms. Khuly’s approach is at best, questionable.

I still believe the story has to be told to a wide audience, but I am worried that the version they will hear will be so far from the actual events, that the message will be lost upon the viewers. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until the movie comes out to know for sure.
