Documentary: Jurakán: Nation in Resistance documents the historical struggle of Puerto Rico, a Caribbean nation that refuses to disappear.

About this Event

Misión Boricua presents the Documentary Jurakán: Nation In Resistance as a fundraiser for the organization and our Weekend for and collaborating with NYC activists Respect & Justice for Puerto Rico.

Home to more than 3 million people, the Caribbean archipelago of Puerto Rico has always been a colony. After centuries of Spanish control, Puerto Rico became a property of the world’s most powerful nation: the United States of America. The new colonizers thought it would be easy to erase the Puerto Rican sense of identity. But “¡Ay, bendito!” They had no idea of what they were up against.

In this film, 41 Puerto Rican artists, politicians, economists, historians, musicians and other participants in some of Puerto Rico’s most important events, come together to tell a story unknown to many. Jurakán: Nation in Resistance is a deep exploration of Puerto Rico’s colonial status, dignity and the pursuit of justice.

*******************************************************************************************

Puerto Rico, un pequeño archipiélago en el Caribe, hogar para más de 3 millones de personas, nunca ha dejado de ser una colonia. De las manos de España, pasó a ser propiedad del país más poderoso del mundo, Estados Unidos. Los nuevos colonos creían que borrar al boricua del mapa sería pan comido. ¡Ay, bendito! no sabían a lo que se enfrentaban.

41 boricuas de distintos ámbitos - artistas, políticos, economistas, historiadores y músicos - relatan algunos de los eventos más importantes de la historia del país. Jurakán: Nación en Resistencia es la historia del coloniaje, la dignidad humana y la búsqueda por un mejor mañana.
