Beatriz Santiago Muñoz’s errant cinema composes a visual love of signifying Puerto Rico and other “disappearing landscape[s].” It poeticizes a radical dance with images that breaches the fascisms of the everyday and makes life from a reckless economic system and polluted world, where El Yunque signifies not only Puerto Rico’s rain forest, but also a San Juan pharmaceutical company.

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz will be introduced by the filmmaker and scholar, Franklin Cason Jr.

This program is curated by Mary Ebeling and Rachel Ellis Neyra and made possible thanks to the support of University of Pennsylvania's Cinema Studies Program, Department of English, Department of Latin American and Latina/o Studies and Department of Hispanic Studies, and Drexel University's College of Arts and Sciences.
