What is going on in PUERTO RICO ?!
Puerto Rico has been in a colonial relationship with the U.S. since 1898.
The documentary MOVING IN PLACE examines the current problems facing the island (high poverty, the recent debt/economic crisis and the aftermath of Hurricane Maria). We come to know several “millennials” torn between their commitment to the island and its culture or leaving to pursue opportunities on the mainland.
Bomba Aguacero, the featured musicians and dancers hail from Puerto Rico, but as part of the Puerto Rican Diaspora, now reside in the Bay Area.
