¿Cómo Fue? A Cuban Journey at Denver Press Club

¿Cómo Fue? A Cuban Journey Pro-Am Documentary RUN TIME: 00:42:314 RATING: G CREDITS: Meg Moritz - Director, Writer Jeff Browne - Producer Emilie Johnson - Director of Photography SYNOPSIS: This is the story of Guillermo "Bill" Vidal, former mayor Denver, and the first immigrant to become a mayor of a major American city. Vidal was airlifted from his home in Cuba after the failed Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961, and mistakenly placed in an orphanage in Pueblo, Colorado. He waited for years before being reunited with his parents. Our crew of student-journalists and professional documentarians went to the island nation on a mission to travel back in time through Vidals' life, forever changed because of what has been called the largest exodus of unaccompanied minors in the history of the Western Hemisphere: Operation Peter Pan (in Spanish, Operación Pedro Pan). Vidal went on to work for more than 20 years with the Colorado Department of Transportation, where he spent five years as executive director. He later worked as the public works manager for the City and County of Denver, negotiating a 20-year franchise agreement with Xcel Energy, introducing the city's first storm and sewer and sanitary sewer master plans, and developing Denver's first strategic transportation plan. In his time with the City of Denver, Vidal became deputy mayor under Gov. John Hickenlooper. When Hickenlooper resigned to run for governor in 2011, Vidal became mayor pro-tem, but chose to serve only until the new mayor could be elected. Vidal serves as not only a model immigrant but as a model citizen, someone who has dedicated his life to public service. And it all started in Cuba.
