ABOUT FRIENDS OF PUERTO RICO

A non-partisan, non-profit organization 501(c)(3) based in Washington, DC that invests in the orange economy by supporting the arts, education, and entrepreneurship  to catalyze economic development and stimulate a sustainable economic development.

Friends of Puerto Rico is the bridge between educational and cultural communities in Puerto Rico and its diaspora. We invest in communities to foster economic sustainability and promote self-sufficiency through art, cultural and educational exchanges.

FPR provides direct financial support to nonprofits that have proven to be efficient and effective, which facilitates  high-impact donations in the region. Our network of donors are business leaders from the Puerto Rican community, as well as the many friends of Puerto Rico in the Washington Metropolitan Area and beyond.

Organizations and donors involved in the Friends of Puerto Rico events become part of our network, creating opportunities for partnership and collaboration across non-profits and donors looking to maximize the impact of their work.

ABOUT THE FILM:

Diego Echeverrias film skillfully represents the challenges residents of the Southside faced: poverty, drugs, gang violence, crime, abandoned real estate, racial tension, single-parent homes, and inadequate local resources. The complex portrait also celebrates the vitality of this largely Puerto Rican and Dominican community, showing the strength of their culture, their creativity, and their determination to overcome a desperate situation. Beautifully restored for the 30th anniversary premiere at the New York Film Festival, this documentary is an invaluable piece of New York City history.

"Trenchant and eye-opening." The Hollywood Reporter

"An authenticity that has been captured by no fiction film Ive ever seen." L.A. Weekly

"Both an invaluable record of pre-gentrification Brooklyn and an ode to a community's resilience. "BAMcinématek
