La deriva (fragmento)
Multilayer mono-channel video HD
Collaboratión of Beatriz Santini y Giancarlo Orco
On 2 August 1993, 15 Cubans left Cienfuegos in a small boat. Just two days later, the engine was damaged and they were adrift for two weeks, until a rough wave sank the boat and the crew were left floating for seven hours at sea. A group of fishermen stumbled upon them just off the coast of Cozumel. Seven - several children - died.
The Mexican government deported the survivors to Cuba, against their will, and five were detained on the island. A chain of atrocities reminiscent of the martyrdom of Sisyphus. One sorrow after another.
