The Film's Producers
With superb acting, brilliant direction and camera-work, this fast-paced movie is a gem! The subject matter is extremely interesting and the story grabs you from the very start. This movie leaves you wanting to know more...about the characters in the film, (the old woman smoking the cigar; Carmela; Carmen; Pedro and Tomas), as well as the historical facts, rarely spoken of, concerning this tumultuous history between Puerto Rico and the U.S. I especially love the choice to include actual historical footage in the film. It plays nicely. Much to my delight, this film does not pander to the audience. On the contrary, it's a fast ride! There are a lot of players and you need to pay attention. I hope to see this film in theaters soon. It's a story that deserves to be told; one that people need to see, hear and experience. In addition, there is some very brave, honest work in this film that features many unknown actors...who will surely not be unknown for much longer! Congratulations to everyone involved!
