El Caribe en Mi (The Caribbean in Me)

Five Puerto Rican artists share their diverse visions and thoughts on the meaning of making art in the Caribbean, and on the presence of the region in their work. Each artist has chosen for the film a location that connects with their vital experience and perspectives. Through their interaction with these spaces they articulate textures, sounds, recollections and senses of place that deliver a diverse narrative about the experience of living, being and creating art in the Caribbean.
