Playa negra/Caballo/Campamento/Los muertos/Fuerzas

16mm black and white / silent / rt 8:00
Playa negra/Caballo/Campamento/Los muertos/Fuerzas was all shot in Vieques, Puerto Rico—an island that was used as a bombing range by the US Navy in Puerto Rico for 60 years, and that for the past 10 has been fighting for its decontamination.

The film weaves together images of a man who cares for horses that roam the old target range; a black magnetite beach that is slowly eroding, an artist who has helped to resurrect a sacred tree which was once within the Navy’s gates and who has herself resurrected from illness more than once, a man who hopes his ritual movements return the island of Vieques to a cosmic balance—all of these are intertwined— land, toxic bomb, political work, celebration and death.
