  • Passionate and humorous, Rosie Perez's directorial debut explores the origins of Puerto Rican pride by digging into her island's rich and sometimes troubled history. Narrated by Jimmy Smits, the documentary examines episodes often pushed to the margins of American textbooks--from forced birth control and sterilizations, to the U.S. bombing of Vieques--as well as the outsider status faced by Puerto Ricans living in the United States. Filled with engaging interviews and pulsing music, YO SOY BORICUA is a must for anyone who wants to learn more about this vibrant culture.
