“This is our first experience of multimedia distribution, funded by two units—documentary and web.”

Catherine Kammermann, in Sunny Side of the Doc

A co-production of Arte and Radio Television Suisse, the web documentary Havana/Miami was created as a follow-up to 2008’s Gaza/Sderot, which follows the lives of citizens in neighboring Israeli and Palestinian cities. Havana/Miami seeks to bridge the US-Cuba divide by following the residents of Havana and Miami. Like Gaza/Sderot, the interface juxtaposes a story from Miami, Florida with one from Havana, Cuba, following the lives of 12 citizens on both sides of the border over a period of three months. Web visitors can explore the stories of Havana/Miami through a timeline, or sorted by topic or characters. In addition, the web documentary Havana/Miami was broadcast as an hour-long program on Arte and Radio Television Suisse.
