Watch ‘Elian’ Trailer Out May 12

The world thought it knew Elián González’s story: The 5-year-old boy who washed up on the Florida coast after a deadly crossing from Cuba who became the center of an extraordinary, never-before-experienced media firestorm and international custody battle, pitting family members against each other and testing political policy at a crucial moment in history. The CNN documentary ELIÁN shows how this incredible story is interwoven into the current political climate – and shows, for the first time, Elián González today speaking in a never-before-seen unfiltered way about his experiences.

Narrated by Tony Award® nominee Raúl Esparza, executive produced by Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney and produced by award-winning filmmaker Trevor Birney, codirected by Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Tim Golden and award-winning photographer Ross McDonnell, ELIÁN weaves together new interviews with Elián and his relatives in Miami.
