The Last Colony

The Last Colony

In 1898, the United States invaded and colonised Puerto Rico. Since then, Puerto Ricans have engaged in a polarising debate on the status issue, disputing between options of statehood, independence and commonwealth. Shot during the period of the 2012 plebiscite held to try to redefine the island’s relationship with the US, The Last Colony considers the views of many leading, Puerto Rican figures in response to a century-old question: Will Puerto Rico remain America’s last colony?
