With her new documentary Embargo, Jeri Rice wants to get through to one group we’ve long been trying to reach: the baby boomers.

Millennials and members of Gen Z often struggle to get our parents’ and grandparents’ ears, growing familiar with the sting of their common dismissals: we’re too inexperienced, too radical, too sensitive. But Rice is none of those things: she lived through the Bay of Pigs, keeps an open ideological mindset, and, with her black leather jacket and winning smile, she’s clearly tough. So, when Rice says that the U.S. government “has been lying to us” about the reality of Cuba’s political situation, many are inclined to believe her.
