$0.00

The dance film “Entre Puerto Rico y Richmond: Women in Resistance Shall Not Be Moved” links interrelated histories of racism and colonial capitalism in Virginia and Puerto Rico.

Filmed in a former American Tobacco Company warehouse, the film honors the spirit of resistance and liberation of Black female tobacco stemmers who worked in segregated facilities in Richmond and invokes Puerto Rican tobacco factory readers and radical activists Dominga de La Cruz Becerril (1909-1981) and Luisa Capetillo (1879-1922), as inspiration for the present. The film is bilingual (Spanish and English) with subtitles and combines biography, poetry, and ritual, with the energy of live performance.
