Brincando El Charco

The cult classic film Brincando el charco, a meditation on Puerto Rican identities in the context of mass migration, will screen as part of Columbia University’s Hispanic Film Festival.

Director Frances Negrón-Muntaner will be present to engage in a dialogue with Richard Peña, director of the New York Film Festival, and the general audience.

Despite the director’s original intent as a film for “half a dozen friends” who also shared the pains and joys of migrating to the U.S. over a decade ago, Brincando el charco still seems to have something to say for new audiences.
