About this Event

MOVING IN PLACE

(Lyka Sethi and Geoffrey Iwata, 2018, 65 minutes)

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.

This is the Bay Area premiere of MOVING IN PLACE.

Caribbean in Motion: A Film Series

With a combined population of 45 million making up .6% of the earth’s population, the Caribbean has an impact well beyond those numbers. It is far more than a tourist destination. This film series -  a combination of documentaries and fiction narratives - examines the various legacies of a region known for its history of slavery, colonialism and migration but the films also reveal the beauty, fierce resistance, regional interconnections, its internationalism, dexterity of its language(s) and its vibrant music.

This series is presented in conjunction with the current exhibition Coffee, Rhum, Sugar & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox, on view May 8-August 11, 2019.
