WORM

A CUBAN AMERICAN ODYSSEY

When Edel was nine, Fidel Castro announced his surprising decision to let 125,000 traitors of the revolution, or ''worms,'' leave the country. The faltering economy and Edel''s family''s vocal discomfort with government surveillance had made their daily lives on a farm outside Havana precarious and they secretly planned to leave. But before that happened, a dozen soldiers confiscated their home and property and imprisoned them in a detention center near the port of Mariel, where they were held with dissidents and criminals before being marched to a flotilla that miraculously deposited them, overnight, in Florida.
Through vivid, stirring art, Worm tells a story of a boyhood in the midst of the Cold War, of a family''s displacement in exile and of their tenacious longing for those they left behind. It also recounts the coming of age of an artist and activist, who, witnessing American''s turn from democracy to extremism, struggles to differentiate his adoptive country from the dictatorship he fled.
Confronting questions of patriotism and the liminal nature of belonging, Edel Rodriguez ultimately celebrates immigrants, maligned and overlooked, who guard and invigorate American freedom.
