[VIDEO] Documentary on the Alan Gross case — recommended

The Office of Cuba Broadcasting, which oversees Radio and Television Martí, has produced a 45-minute documentary on Alan Gross.

Alan Gross was imprisoned for five years after being found guilty of bringing a few personal satellite-Internet ground stations into Cuba. I’ve reported on the technology, the propaganda and the legal effort to free him, but this documentary adds a personal touch — you “meet” Alan, his wife Judith and his former cellmate and now dear friend Rolando Garcia.

I think you will like what you see — Gross comes across as being smart, idealistic and having a sense of humor. He was not broken and embittered by his ordeal — he is optimistically looking forward, not dwelling on the past.

Check it out.
