Challenging Power - Nov 19 to Nov 25

Landfall Cecilia Aldarondo

Films A to Z

When Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in 2017, the U.S. territory was already battered by years of austerity measures aimed at erasing its $72 billion debt. Two years later, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of San Juan to demand the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rosselló and the end of a brutal colonial fiscal policy. Cecilia Aldarondo, a member of the Puerto Rican diaspora, visited local communities and spoke with profiteers, in an attempt to understand events in a time of intertwined economic and environmental crises. A moving portrait of an entire people’s trauma and resistance, the film also delivers an incisive analysis of “disaster capitalism.” (Charlotte Selb)
