Nos Vamos Pa' Paris
Comedy, 9 min.
Directed by David Norris
On the verge of losing their home, 80-year-old Rosita and her sheepish husband, Gonzalo, are forced to rob the bank where she worked for 30 years. This film exposes, with humor, Puerto Rico’s economic crisis and the sad reality of the elderly living on the island. This film is in Spanish with English subtitles.

Vote for Me
Comedy, 1 hour 30 min.
Directed by Nelson Denis
This hilarious political comedy set in East Harlem: the story of a 70-year old Puerto Rican super who runs for Congress and wins.
