Storyline

This documentary presents a personal journey through Puerto Rico's rich African, Taino, and Spanish cultural traditions with revelatory stories by poets, abolitionists, revolutionaries, and politicians, all of whom have struggled for a national identity that has been greatly influenced by the island's ambiguous relationship with the United States. Using interviews, literature, poetry, the collages of artist Juan Sanchez, along with archival film footage and photographs, Mi Puerto Rico gives the viewer a musical, visual, and historical journey seen from the island itself and from its many transplants on the mainland United States. Written by Leslye Allen (L. J. Allen-2)

Great Documentary
19 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

How does this great documentary of our history get pushed to the side with virtually none existent?It's the best history watching anyone could view.Our folks need to know all of this.Many of us do not know the history of Puetorican struggles.Maybe by making this public to everyone our struggle would be different today.I really loved the sequence of narration.The graphics were splendid.No nonsense information.I have viewed this documentary with many family and friends and watched there reaction to see all kinds of great expressions,surprised,angry,sad,happy what more can one ask of media?An academy award piece.
