Summary

Desde Adentro is a feature length documentary that tells the uncommon stories of four community leaders in the aftermath of hurricane Maria who are determined to organize themselves in order to cope with the needs of their communities. The documentary shows a distinctive angle that follows the slow path of recovery and the dialogue between their self managed projects and the political and economic undertones of colonialism.

Challenge

In 2017, when Hurricanes Irma and Maria wreaked havoc across Puerto Rico, self-organized community-led response efforts quickly emerged to provide life-saving relief to tens of thousands across the islands as a failed governmental response became evermore evident. Amidst climate and socioeconomic vulnerabilities and in the face of continued government neglect, a crippling $74 Billion dollar debt, earthquakes and a now global pandemic, communities continue to imagine the future of the island.

Solution

"Desde Adentro" tells the story of four community leaders whose self-sustainability, daring creativity and unshakable solidarity counters the daunting reality of having been left in the dark. By sharing stories of self-determination and action, this film intends to inspire and activate others to do same, not only in Puerto Rico but also in places across the globe where marginalized communities are experiencing similar social and political disparities.

Long-Term Impact

Beyond raising the voices of the protagonists in the film and increasing awareness on the complexities of community work, the documentary will introduce an open-source toolkit that highlights the methodological approaches and strategies used by the community leaders in the film. Through a series of workshops and events, we hope to build greater power by catapulting bottom-up just recovery efforts in communities across Puerto Rico and beyond and to help strengthen the web of citizen-led enclaves.
