Discussion with filmmakers and community members from Puerto Rico
Donations are accepted at the door.
Come see this award-winning documentary that addresses the government’s disregard and poor relief management during Hurricane Maria. This film highlights young residents from Comerio, Puerto Rico activate themselves by taking control and transforming not only their lives but their community. In the lush mountains in the center of Puerto Rico, 24-year-old Mariangelie Ortiz leads a group of young residents who never thought they would become leaders, nonetheless finding themselves traveling to Washington D.C. to protest in the halls of Congress. Follow them in this coming-of-age story to find their power and begin creating a sustainable future for themselves and their community. We look forward to seeing you there. Que viva Borikén Libre!
