CONGA LESSONS AT THE BAY OF PIGS        52  Minutes.            $$$

During the Christmas/New Years holiday of 2002, three American filmmakers visit Cuba. Their intentions are to explore the island's musical and cultural heritage, but to stay clear of the politics separating the two countries.  Instead, they discovered that over forty years after the Bay of Pigs catastrophe of 1961, the effects of that invasion refuse to disappear, that it is basically impossible to visit Cuba and ignore the deadly Miami/Havana/Washington triangle of recriminations.     2004 (RT 52:00)

Produced by Charles Lyman.  Co-Directed by Charles Lyman & Peter Melaragno.  Written, Narrated & Edited by Peter Melaragno.  Cinematography: David Audet, Charles Lyman, Arthur Harris, Peter Melaragno.

CUBA: THE 40 YEARS WAR     Narrated by Martin Sheen.   52 Minutes. $$$

Five Cuban-American Veterans of the Bay of Pigs travel to Havana with Arthur Schlesinger, Richard Goodwin, and two ex-CIA operatives.  Their mission: Reconciliation. 

The Cuban delegation includes Fidel Castro himself, but our story is that of the men of Brigade 2506, returning to Cuba knowing it will enrage their Miami compatriots, particularly when Castro and Cuban-American Alfredo Duran sharing a microphone and discussing the battle are interrupted as one of the Cubans shooting at Alfredo in 1961 marches up and shakes his hand.    2002 (RT 52:00)

Co-Produced & Co-Directed by Peter Melaragno & Jim Burroughs.  Written & Edited by Peter Melaragno.  Cinematography: David West.
