The Last Colony

Agustin Marquez, Juan; Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
In 1898, the United States invaded and colonized Puerto Rico as part of the Spanish American War. For 114 years the people of Puerto Rico have maintained a polarizing debate on the status issue that has been front and center of the island's political discourse. Puerto Ricans (American citizens since 1917) constantly ponder the three options of Statehood, Independence and Commonwealth. Filmmaker Juan Agustin Marquez traveled back to his homeland of Puerto Rico prior to the island's fourth plebiscite to try to redefine its political relationship with the United States. He interviewed leading politicians, historians, sociologists, and economists to dissect the status debate in a multilayered conversation about the pros and cons of each option on the ballot. His mission: To explain the status debate to the people of the United States, Congress and the President, and bring the American people up to date on this century old question: Will there be a change in status in America's Last Colony? An invaluable educational tool that lets us address this extremely complicated topic in an intelligent and effective manner. - El Nuevo Dia
