Documentary Film—“Después de María: Las 2 orillas”


Después de María: Las 2 orillas [After Maria: The 2 Shores] is a new documentary by Sonia Fritz. It will premiere on September 20, 2018, 9:30pm, at the Emilio S. Belaval Theater of Universidad del Sagrado Corazón [Sacred Heart University], Sagrado Corazón de Jesús Avenue, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Description: The documentary Después de María: Las 2 orillas is a look at Puerto Rico eight months after the passing of the hurricane. It includes explorations of several community self-management projects around the island such as the Las Carolinas communal kitchen in Caguas, net rescue in Naguabo, a hydroponics farm in Lares, as well as the “Catharsis” project featuring works by artists at the Museum of the Americas.

It also includes the stories of families who emigrated to Orlando and had to split up after the hurricane: two high school students, a Camuy family, and several family businesses that now provide help from abroad, as well as the important contribution of the diaspora in the reconstruction.
