DOBLE 9 is an expositional documentary that delves into the world of four Cuban exiles living in Miami’s Little Havana. In this documentary, the game of dominoes, played at the Maximo Gomez Domino Park, brings our protagonists together in a unique way. The game allows them to form a special bond with each other, while the park serves as a sanctuary to all the players. A place where they go to have fun with their friends and forget about their worries and problems. We explore the philosophy of the game, along with the Cuban tradition of playing dominoes- which often starts at an early age at home with their family. This film precedes
