Freedom Campaign for the New York premiere of
the documentary: Simulacros de Liberación:

After experiencing a ten-year economic crisis and facing the threats of climate change, the people of Puerto Rico no longer trust the state. Activists go out to reclaim the streets to demand that the government assume its responsibilities, and organize mutual support centers to make sure they survive as Puerto Ricans. In this epic documentary directed by Juan C. Dávila Santiago, Puerto Rican youth build their own path to liberation, as we observe the faces of survival and resistance.

This documentary has a unique point of view that is born from the social movements of Puerto Rico. The director captures a series of historical events as they unfold on the front lines, including: protests against a Fiscal Control Board appointed by the US Congress (2016), life after Hurricane Maria (2017-18) and protests of the Combative Summer (2019).
