LANDFALL Digital Event & Commemoration of Hurricane Maria, 9/19

LANDFALL: A Digital Event and Commemoration of Hurricane Maria

Saturday, September 19th, 4:00 PM (EDT)

Three years ago, Hurricane María barrelled through Puerto Rico, laying bare the political disasters that preceded it. Join us for a digital event LANDFALL commemorating Hurricane María’s passing, its survivors and their stories.

The event will feature a sneak preview of the new film LANDFALL (Directed and Produced by Cecilia Aldarondo), live performances from Puerto Rican artists, including music by Danny Rivera and poetry by Dr. Raquel Salas Rivera, and an audience Q&A with top experts including Xiomara Caro Diaz (Maria Fund) and Julio López-Varona (Center for Popular Democracy) centered on climate change, the current economic & political challenges facing Puerto Rico and a vision of a just recovery. The event will be moderated by our Seminar Faculty Leader Dr. Yarimar Bonilla of the Puerto Rico Syllabus, and will be bilingual with live interpretation provided by Babilla Colectivo.
