El Signo Vacío

Opens on May 5

Director: Kathryn Ramey Format: 35mm Film Language: English and Spanish w/English subtitles

Screening on 35mm film

Mixing a hundred years of found footage—tourism, agricultural and propaganda films—with contemporary portraits of artists and activists this film is a journey through the complex layers of the United States’ occupation of Puerto Rico. Using an experimental and ethnographic approach the film reveals how carefully crafted American fictions of “democracy” and “debt” obscure a capitalist and military domination.
