First American movie filmed in Cuba since Fidel Castro's revolution.

Interesting. It highlights the fact that there are so many of our laws that are not being enforced. Why is this man to facing repercussions? I believe in the embargo, but to be honest, I don't know why. Can anyone explain it to me? I want Cuba to be free, but I can see the logic in the idea of flooding the island nation with capitalism, investments and infrastructure. This same influx would strengthen the opposition, and open the eyes of the people to the great world outside of the island. This would surely weaken Castro's hold on the people, would it not? I don't know for sure...
Moro wrote a love story set in Cuba. Then, defying the decades-old U.S. embargo on the Communist island, a cast and crew of about 15 people traveled there in 2003 and shot ``Love & Suicide,'' creating what could be the first American movie filmed in Cuba since Fidel Castro's revolution.

Although the movie is not political, Moro said hopes that by shooting it in Cuba, he will highlight what he thinks is an ineffective embargo.
